Description

Pagosa Springs, Colorado, located in Archuleta County is steeped in western history, starting with its name Pagosa (a Ute word meaning “healing or boiling water”). In the 1970’s Pagosa Springs and Archuleta County became a haven for land developers. The county offered what hungry land seekers wanted, panoramas of mountains, forest, streams, and large open acreage. Forest Park Ranch encompasses 2,215± deeded acres of exceptional well-maintained land. The ranch has 600± acres under habitat enhancement with exceptional restoration work, totaling over 30 years of aggressive efforts. An estimated 10,000 stumps have been removed from turn of the century clear cuts. Washout and erosion points have been mitigated on a huge portion of the ranch. These efforts have paid off creating a national park like setting, attracting an abundance of different wildlife making the ranch their home. Hundreds of resident elk, mule deer, and turkey can be found throughout the ranch. Also, some black bear, mountain lion, and eagles. The ranch’s topography is made up of varying elevations from 6,800 ft. to almost 8,000 ft. This sprawling ranch gives you an accumulation of meadows, forest, ponds, and springs. There is 11.5 cfs of senior seasonal water rights, 9± miles of crowned and enhanced main roads, and 31± miles of secondary roads. Picnic tables and fire pits have been strategically placed throughout the ranch to enjoy picnics and barbeques, while capturing stunning mountain sunsets and sunrise views. Ten different mountain peaks can be seen from within the ranch borders with elevations ranging from 11,289 to 12,769 feet, which is spectacular. The ranch borders 6,200± acres of USFS lands, is in GMU 771, has no conservation easement, is fenced on three sides, and is under Ag status with the forestry program: all attributes of an outstanding Colorado ranch property.
