Blanca Peak West Ranch lies directly under the face of the 14,347-foot-high Blanca Peak. It is a short distance north of the historic town of Blanca, Colorado, making it easily accessible from anywhere in the country. This property has unique end-of-the-road privacy, with unparalleled views of the San Luis Valley. The 1,680± acre ranch is heavily timbered with various trees such as old-growth Ponderosa Pines, spring-fed Aspen groves, basin bottoms lined with Cottonwoods, and south-facing slopes covered in Juniper and Cedar. A newly built road system throughout provides access to all pieces of the property. The varied terrain provides this ranch with excellent game cover, unlimited hiking, and beautiful views. Blanca Peak West Ranch is in GMU 83, home to some of Colorado’s largest bull elk, with some in recent years being over 400” Boone & Crockett score. GMU 83 has a long history of being a prime location for big game hunting. Established in the early 1900s, the unit has since undergone significant changes in its management practices to balance the needs of the wildlife and the hunters. GMU 83 encompasses a diverse range of habitats, including alpine forests, grasslands, and mountainous regions, making it home to various big game species such as elk, Mule deer, black bears, and mountain lions. Over the years, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department has worked diligently to improve the unit's hunting regulations, habitat management, and research efforts to sustain the big game populations while offering ample hunting opportunities. Today, GMU 83 remains a sought-after destination for big game hunting, attracting hunters from all over the world. The ranch shares miles of its fence line with one of Colorado’s largest ranches, the Trenchara Ranch, which is entirely under a conservation easement, guaranteeing never to be developed and to remain an exceptional big game habitat. The Blanca Peak West Ranch boasts the beautiful Blanca Creek waterfall which is known by the Navajo Tribe as "Tó Nííltsósí” which means "where the water falls through the rocks." The waterfall is considered a place of healing and renewal, and its water is believed to have powerful properties, such as spiritual and physical healing. You will find that Blanca Peak Ranch is a rare opportunity in the mountain west - a large tract of land not under any conservation easement, steeped in the history of the Native American culture, and backed into an enormous conserved neighboring property. Home to a migrating elk herd from the Great Sand Dunes to the winter range of the 200,000± acre Trenchara Ranch.
