One of the first things you'll notice about the Double B Ranch is its beautiful irrigated meadows that stretch the width of the property. This long meadow is split into several different pastures The pastures are equipped with newer side roll irrigation equipment as well as pipe and sprinklers. The lower half of the property is well fenced and cross-fenced to keep in horses and livestock. There are two ponds on the property, one halfway up the mesa in the oak brush and aspens, while the other is at the end of the meadow near the house.
Battlement Mesa Ranch, part of the Double B Ranch, is located on the South side of the Colorado River basin and the I-70 corridor. The town of Parachute is only a short drive away and lies about halfway in between Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction.

Whether you prefer to hunt, hike, fish or ride, you can do it all right out the back door of the Double B Ranch. This area is well known for its diversity of wildlife, including Elk, Mule Deer, Moose, Black Bear, Grouse, Ducks, and Geese. With thousands of acres of BLM bordering the ranch, there is always the opportunity to ride further, hunt farther, and hike harder, because you never know what may lie on the other side of that next ridge... If fishing is your vice, the famous Colorado River provides ample opportunity to catch trout year-round. In addition, there is an untold number of small mountain lakes and streams on the mesa that provides that pure backcountry fly-fishing experience that our grandfathers cherished.
