The versatility of this ranch property is its namesake. The creek has historically supported a herd of buffalo for the past 20 years. It's a walk back in time as you encounter these majestic and historically significant animals migrate across the landscape.

Spanning approximately 8,000 deeded acres, this signicant property is home to an abundant population of wildlife. Antelope roam the at country and the mule deer seem to always nd a home in the south. The deep arroyo that cuts through the ranch is where an occasional elk chased out of the mountains above can be found.


"There's no mistaking it for any other town in Colorado. For one thing, few other cities have a downtown filled with Victorian architecture that's remained nearly unchanged during the last century. But should you need a reminder of where you are, all you need to do is look down. The streets are paved with red bricks, and each brick is stamped TRINIDAD." Trinidad's public green spaces are second to none for a town of its size. In addition to a world-class skatepark, radical disc golf course, an aquatic center, and a riverwalk, four public parks offer bocce ball, fishing, fountain-romping, running trails, and sports fields as well as a historic bandshell for public concerts. Trinidad's historic municipal golf course with grand views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains is in a wooded setting overlooking the town.

Trinidad's museums encapsulate the rich legacy from prehistoric creatures and cultures, early western art, and Old West lifestyles. In the tradition of an Old West center of trade on the Santa Fe Trail, Trinidad's shops and galleries offer an array of goods: Native American crafts, jewelry, clothing, home decor, antiques, and sports equipment & apparel. Galleries in the National Historic District showcase works by regional and international artists. On summer Saturdays, Farmers' Market vendors sell fresh produce and crafts. To the west of Trinidad is lake country. A distinctive feature of this Highway of Legends region is huge dikes that radiate like spokes of a wheel from the ancient Spanish Peaks. The Sangre de Cristos march along the horizon.

The area is superb for easy access to fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, wind surfing, camping, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and wildlife watching. Those who want demanding adventure follow trails to the mountain peaks and choose the four-wheel-drive backroads. Afternoon rains in summer freshen the forests of pine, spruce, cedar, and aspen. Autumn on the Highway of Legends is a wash of gold when the aspen leaves turn.

    When looking for a hunting ranch there are few ranches that you step foot on where you completely feel secluded from the world and are able to walk in almost any direction without seeing an orange vest. Black Ridge Ranch is just that, nearly 20 miles of gravel/dirt roads and behind 5 locked gates you arrive at the most secluded ranch I've ever stepped foot on. The long drive is so worth it as much of this heavily wooded ground is never touched by humans, the abundant game has some of the best ecosystems with the high country grass
