Piedra River Ranch Located on both sides of the Piedra River and approximately halfway between Durango and Pagosa Springs, Colorado lies the Piedra River Ranch, the most completely appointed, gold medal riverfront property value that exists today in Southwest Colorado. There is a lot to be said about the Seller (a West Point Engineering graduate and veteran) who looked for years to find this property. And then, once acquired, designed it as the consummate riverfront ranch. This +/- 36 acres has no equal: encompassing both sides of the river without a homeowners association CCR’s. Located less than an hour from the gate of Piedra River Ranch you’ll be going through security at Durango-La Plata County Airport, with daily, direct and nonstop service to Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Phoenix and Los Angeles (LAX summer months only). It’s much faster than finding parking at a major airport and they still let you park for free for the first 30 minutes! Should your dreams be generations of family recreation, a corporate retreat, a guest ranch, AIRBNB or the Southern Colorado River Home you’ve worked your whole life for, you need to take a look at the Piedra River Ranch. There is nothing like it on the market! The River and the Water Piedra River Watershed is one of the cleanest watersheds in North America fed by mountain springs and snow shed of the Weminuche Wilderness (a half million acres of horseback or backpack only) located in the very heart of the San Juan National Forest. It’s a designated Gold Medal fisher with native cutthroats and brookies up high and on the tribs and trophy german browns and feisty rainbows round out the river. There’s a custom built fly fishing shed and a kids tree house on the river. There’s also a gazebo and stone fire pit for s’mores, cookouts and parties on the river with family and friends. The ranch has year-round senior-deeded irrigation rights 1.25 cfs and has no sharing of ditch usage or regulated days. One of the most liberal water rights that exist! The ranch is completely plumbed and has irrigation headers throughout to every corner of the property. The irrigation complements the duel irrigation system (2 side rollers) that irrigates +/- 30 acres of timothy/alfalfa hay with up to 3 cuttings a year. Customers line up to purchase the hay every year produced on PRR. A permitted well produces 35 gallons per minute. National Forest Straight across the road commences over 1.8 million acres of public access to the San Juan National Forest that will provide many lifetimes of recreation for your family. Enjoy 15 miles of the public access to the Gold Medal Piedra River, horseback, hiking, fishing, camping, hunting with over the counter elk tags, grouse, turkey, mule deer and bear to name just a few. Four-wheeling with ATV’s or jeeps, cross country skiing, and 2 ski areas, Wolf Creek Pass and Purgatory/Durango Mountain Resort, are but a little over an hour away. Fishing The ranch features a +/-1-acre pond that is stocked with dozens of rainbows up to 6+ lbs., a great place to teach the grandkids and entertain family members, guests and clients. A half-mile (+/- both sides of the river ) of river frontage compliments this unequalled property with 7 rock weirs and pools that are 10-12 feet deep. Start your day with coffee down on the river and release a few 20-inchers before breakfast. Current costs of river improvement/restoration can run over a $1 million-a-mile. There’s a custom bridge that allows access to your very own island in the river. Equestrian With a lifetime of hay production, horse facilities abound. What’s the use of being in the middle of 1.8 million acres of national forest if you don’t have horses? Custom round pens, welded 5-rail pipe fence, paddocks and stalls, a tack barn and a surrey/wagon/carriage house & loft storage with dog runs. You name it, this ranch has it.
