Turkey Creek Ranch is on the southwestern slope of Greenhorn Mountain, north of the Huerfano River Valley, on the edge of the Wet Mountain Valley near Gardner, Colorado. This 325 acre ranch is a mountain retreat and producing ranch with the peace and quiet of a remote property that is accessible year round. Turkey Creek is a year-round freestone stream flowing through the property for almost a half mile. The ranch is fenced and cross fenced. All portions of the ranch are easily accessible by two-track roads. The 325 acre ranch offers limitless recreational opportunities; hunting, fishing, horseback riding, biking, and 4-wheeling are a few. A large herd of elk use the ranch for grazing and calving. Mule deer, bear, bobcat, mountain lion, coyote, turkey and other wildlife visit the ranch on a regular basis. BLM adjoins the ranch on the south. The San Isabel National Forest and Greenhorn Wilderness is 1 mile north of the property. The ranch supports agricultural production of alfalfa and timothy/brome hay in non-drought years on approximately 100 acres of the ranch. Approximately 160 acres away from the hay production area is used to support other ranch operations. The remaining acreage, approximately 65 acres, is treed along the steam and on the hillside. The ranch has water rights and an adjudicated spring to support the ranch and hay operation. The ditches are used to flood the hayfields when needed. In non-drought years Cedar Spring produces enough water to fill four large stock tanks and supply water for livestock, wildlife, domestic use, and irrigation of the area around the home. This is an amazing property that must be seen to be appreciated.
