Bordering National Forest on 3 sides and located at 8000' elevation on the Hay Camp Mesa in Dolores, CO, Silver Springs Ranch is an extremely private high country recreational property consisting of over 1,000 acres with springs, ponds, lush meadows, ravines, and forests with pine, oak, and aspens. Improvements consist of a site built Hogan with a water well, septic, propane, and a generator, as well as an outdoor pavilion/gazebo for barbecues. There is also an old hunters cabin near one of the ponds. Elk, Deer, Turkey, Bear and Mountain Lion all frequent the ranch. This property lies within Colorado Game Management Unit # 73, allowing for over the counter rifle bull elk tags and rifle mule deer buck tags by draw. Private land owner tags are also available for both elk and deer. The perimeter of the ranch is fenced for livestock. Low ag taxes of only $1,849.72 a year. Silver Springs Ranch would be a great candidate for a conservation easement, or potential for subdividing with its location and National Forest boundary. For ease of access to various locations on the property there are 2 track roads cut along the majority of the ranch. There is year round access from the west off of County Road 36. There is 3 season access through Forest Service Road 492. Make sure to view the virtual tour for a ranch video and map.
