494B Hartong Lane Pagosa Springs CO Real Estate

Incredible opportunity to own a prized and historical ranch near the sought after South San Juan wilderness area. The Hartong Ranch is a beautiful alpine 3000+ acres has a combination of everything including over 4 miles of Little Navajo River with native Cutthroat Trout, a large private lake stocked with beautiful Rainbow Trout and rich wildlife including deer, elk, turkey & bear. The ranch is nearly surrounded by San Juan National Forest with access to V Rock, Buckles and Harris Lakes, Navajo Peaks and the Chalk Mountains. The current ranch operation includes cattle, running 100 pair during the summer months, haying of approximately 30 acres and hunting with 3 vintage hunting cabins. There is nearly 20 miles of fence, all in good condition. The diverse topography ranges from 7,500 feet to 9,300 feet in elevation. From irrigated bottom land to Ponderosa Pine Forests up to huge Aspen groves and high country evergreens. Multiple creeks run through the property as well as several stock ponds built throughout the years. Conveniently, a bull-dozed track makes seeing the entire ranch easy and fun via ATV or Jeep. Horseback trails lead you to some of the more scenic and less traveled part of the ranch where you'll frequently encounter elk & other wildlife. Because of the varied topography the 3,000+ acres seems much larger and plan on spending a good day to get a glimpse of the vastness. The property has been thoughtfully protected by a conservation easement through the Colorado Cattleman's Agricultural Land Trust preserving it for lifetimes to come.
