Property Description

Welcome to Hidden Canyon Ranch!  These beautifully diverse 163 acres are located just outside of Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, which is just under an hours' drive Northwest of Fort Collins.   This land is easily accessible off of a privately maintained road and less than a mile from paved Red Feather Lakes Road.  While this property may be easy to get to, you will feel like you are deep in the wilderness of Colorado once you step foot on this unique ranch.  You are bound to find something new every time you explore this beautiful piece of property!  The property encompasses a diverse ecosystem and has a favorable mix of open meadows, aspen groves, dark timber, natural springs, rock outcroppings, and creek bottoms, means that this relatively small ranch packs a big punch!  The live water, privacy, cover, and feed, make this a haven for wildlife, including, Mule Deer, Elk, Turkey, Moose, and Bear.  Thanks to the Conservation Easement with Colorado Open Lands, this property qualifies for agricultural status in perpetuity, which keeps your takes low as well as allows you to apply in the Colorado Landowner Big Game Voucher program. 


RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

One would be hard-pressed to find the variety of recreational opportunities this property offers, including hunting, hiking, camping, and horseback riding to name a few.  Located in Game Management Unit 191, this property provides excellent Mule Deer hunting opportunities as well as Elk, Grouse, Small Game and occasionally wild Turkey. In addition, it's not uncommon to see Shiras Moose, Black Bear, Hawks, Owls, and a host of other wildlife on Hidden Canyon Ranch. If fishing is your thing, head over to Elkhorn Creek in the National Forest and spend the day casting dry flies to rarely fished for Brook Trout. Just a few miles away is the town, and public lakes, of Red Feather Lakes. There are six lakes open to public fishing, including Parvin, Dowdy, and Bellaire, each of which offers phenomenal fishing during the summer or winter months. In addition, the nationally designated "Wild and Scenic" Cache La Poudre River is only 10 short miles away and offers some of the best river rafting and fishing in Northern Colorado.

Throughout the year, it's common to see Elk, Mule Deer, Moose, Grouse, and various small game species, making it the perfect home base for the hunting enthusiast. This one of a kind property is unimproved and provides a beautiful blank canvas for the future owner to build their dream home and outbuildings. While the land itself doesn't have any buildings or improvements, it does have electric power near the building envelope as well as good perimeter fencing surrounding the boundary. 

This property is also part of the North Rim Road HOA and therefore provides private access to secluded National Forest behind locked gates. The vast amount of nearby National Forest allows one to explore all the way from the Wyoming border in the Laramie Mountains, to the Mummy Range, and even as far south as Rocky Mountain National Park. Whether you choose a mountain bike, ATV, Jeep, horseback, or use your own two legs as your mode of transportation, make sure you pack a lunch because you can just keep going, and going and going...


NEARBY AMENITIES

Just a few miles from the ranch, you'll drive into the town of Red Feather Lakes which is the jumping-off point to over 600,000 acres of National Forest. In addition, RFL is home to numerous restaurants, shops, rental cabins and guest ranches. Red Feather Lakes is a premier destination for the outdoor enthusiast; hiking, camping, fishing, rafting, hunting and enjoying the beautiful Colorado landscape are all in abundance! Small-town living can be found year-round in Red Feather Lakes, while many visit seasonally to enjoy a summer hike, fall colors, or a snowy holiday. The vibrant city of Fort Collins is a short 45-mile drive and is home to Colorado State University, world-class restaurants, dozens of microbreweries, countless shops, and beautiful open spaces. The Loveland / Fort Collins Regional Airport allows for a wide range of private aircraft to come and go, while Denver International Airport is a mere 2 hours away from the ranch.


CONSERVATION VALUE

This ranch is permanently protected with a conservation easement held by Colorado Open Lands. The purpose of the easement is to preserve and protect the agricultural value of the land as well as the wildlife and plant habitat, wetlands, open space, and scenic qualities of the ranch. This easement still allows for building a single-family home as well as three additional outbuildings, hunting, shooting, cattle grazing, and timber maintenance.


SUMMARY

The simplicity and beauty of this ranch speak for itself. Whether this becomes your year-round home or just a weekend get-a-way, you'll be truly thankful for every moment you get to spend here. Come see for yourself the varied landscape and wide array of Colorado wildlife right out the front door.  Call Mike Callan today to set up your own private viewing of this amazing property!
