Sky Ranch encompasses 256.52 acres of conserved lands under stewardship with The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. This incredible and diverse landscape is filled with a surplus of aspen, fir and spruce trees to provide privacy as well as an ever-changing range of colors for every season. There are (3) spring-fed ponds and 2,000+/- feet of Eightmile Creek which create a riparian habitat that not only attracts a wide variety of wildlife (elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep, black bear, mountain lion, Golden Eagle and more) but also creates a water ecosystem to support fish and other aquatic species. Whether you are trophy hunting, fishing the ponds, horseback riding or ATVing through open grassland parks, mature aspen groves, rocky canyons, you will soak in some of very best Colorado's mountain scenery; including snow-capped Pikes Peak and the Sangre De Cristo's. Relax at the rustic log home, AKA the hunting camp , which has been completely remodeled. Mountain furniture, furnishings, and accessories to make it a turnkey experience. Find quaint sitting areas throughout the home including a spacious great room with a magnificent woodburning fireplace, a large, covered deck to enjoy the cool, crisp mountain air and listen for the quaking aspens and bulging elk. Other improvements include (2) enormous storage buildings, loafing shed for horses, a custom fishing cabin & hunting blind. The ranch is located adjacent to a Colorado State Land Section (640 acres) and nearby BLM Lands. It also borders Phantom Canyon Road, part of the Gold Belt Tour, a National and Colorado Scenic Byway. Skagway Reservoir & Pike National Forest are in close vicinity offering additional recreation such as camping, hunting, boating and fishing. The historic mining towns of Victor and Cripple Creek are minutes away offering traditional conveniences of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and small stakes gaming. The ranch is an ideal escape from Colorado Springs (one hour) and Denver (1 hour 45 min).
