Discover the unparalleled potential of the Royal Gorge Ranch, a sprawling 2,852 ±-acre canvas for your wildest Colorado dreams. Unlike typical ranches, this property, located south of the iconic Royal Gorge Bridge, offers unbridled freedom without the constraints of conservation easements. Access is a breeze year-round via a county-maintained road linked directly to Hwy 50, allowing you to escape into a panorama of breathtaking mountain views, open vistas, and glimpses of Pikes Peak. The property borders vast BLM lands on three sides, extending the canvas for your vision. Royal Gorge Ranch is a rancher's dream and a hunter's haven. Grazing leases are ready to go, making ranching aspirations seamless, while GMU 691 provides over-the-counter elk tags for an exhilarating hunting experience. The property is fenced and cross-fenced, divided into approximately five pastures (expandable to 28), with water access and fair roads, optimizing livestock management and rotational grazing. Remnants of a legacy await discovery, including an old homestead with an adobe barn, echoing the ranch's storied past. The adventure extends beyond the property's boundaries, with the Arkansas River just minutes away for rafting and trout fishing. Renowned climbing spots and diverse trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding beckon adventure enthusiasts. The essentials include a charming 3-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom ranch house, practical corrals, a barn with endless customization possibilities, and a private airstrip for convenient private aviation access, adding exclusivity to your Colorado escape. Strategically located 15 minutes from Cañon City, this charming town offers a small-town atmosphere with big-city amenities. From art galleries and historic buildings to whitewater adventures on the Arkansas River, the locale caters to outdoor enthusiasts, history buffs, and culture seekers. Cañon City's central location, just 35 minutes from Westcliffe, 45 minutes from Colorado Springs, and a 1.5-hour drive to Denver, makes it an ideal base camp for exploring all that Colorado has to offer. Owning the Royal Gorge Ranch transcends acquiring land; it's about embracing Colorado's untamed spirit. Picture sunrises painting mountains in gold, crisp mountain air, the echo of elk calls, and a star-studded night sky. This is your opportunity to script your own chapter in the Colorado frontier.
