Flat Top Mountain Ranch is located on the shore's edge of Groundhog Reservoir just 30 miles North of Dolores Colorado. Groundhog Reservoir is a little getaway place where you can enjoy Gods creation and countless recreational activities. The Ranch borders the 614 acre reservoir and has roughly 1.3+/- miles of trout-rich lake frontage. This is a sportsman dream as you soak up the in your face views of Lone Cone Mountain while enjoying the booming resident elk herds and the muley monarchs of the mountain.
The 276+/- acres is located in GMU 71 and is well known for the trophy potential Elk and Mule Deer. Unit 71 boasts great feed and cover for the growing herds in the unit. The Ranch sits within 2 miles of Lone Cone state wildlife area and the San Juan national forest where you can be on over 300,000 acres of public ground. Unit 71 offers over the counter Elk tags for archery, 2nd and 3rd season rifle permits and since the ranch consists of over 160 acres it qualifies for the Landowner Preference Program where you can consistently draw a highly coveted mule deer tag yearly.
The Fishing is like no other you've experienced the reservoir host Monster rainbow and cutthroat trout, and they are plentiful across the body of water. You have access to the 1.3 miles of lake frontage to get your line wet and make those incredible memories. The Reservoir was built in 1905 for the Montezuma valley irrigation company and has been a secret fishing hole for years as the fish grow exponentially every year as they feed on the crawfish.
Flat Top Mountain Ranch has been used for years as great grazing ground for sheep and cattle and holds great habitat for Deer and Elk, the flat land off the lake rolls back into the quaking aspens and flat top meadows with ample water supply feeding the decent size pond on the property. You can run cattle during the spring and summer and rent the ground out to hunters during the fall. It would also make a great cabin site for you to have a VRBO to rent out during the fishing and snowmobile season.
