Slash H Creek Ranch
Sportman's Ranch for sale on Michigan Creek
Nestled in a beautiful high mountain valley about one hour drive southwest of Denver and thirty-five minutes to world-class skiing in Breckenridge is this 268-acre hidden jewel called the Slash H Creek Ranch. A year-round sportsman’s paradise, this ranch includes a near-new 3,000+ sq. ft. custom home, huge equipment storage barn, approximately one mile of a classic Colorado trout stream with strong populations of browns, brooks and a few rainbows; four sub-irrigated grass hay fields producing 60-90 tons of hay per year. It is fenced & cross-fenced for grazing livestock and is home to large herds of traveling elk and resident herds of antelope. The ranch is less then two miles from State Highway 285 and only fifteen minutes northeast of Fairplay; a small western town with all the amenities including medical facilities, schools, hotels, restaurants, grocery stores and much more. Just bring the fishing poles – the home is furnished and the equipment barn is complete with a 47hp tractor and implements.
Slash H Creek Ranch is located on Litmer Road approximately 17 miles northeast of Fairplay and 52 miles southwest of Denver. Fairplay, founded in 1867, is an easy fifteen-minute drive from the ranch; it is also the County Seat and the home of Park County government offices. Included in this historic town is a library, post office, many restaurants, medical facilities, public schools, a grocery store, hardware stores, several gas stations, hotels & motels, numerous small business and much more.
Just thirty-eight miles from the ranch is world-class skiing at Breckenridge Ski Resort, fifty-three miles to the Arkansas River for some great whitewater rafting, and some of Colorado’s finest gold medal trout waters surround the ranch including over 1 mile of Michigan Creek which bisects the ranch. Just up the road is Pike National Forest for some of the finest big game hunting in the world.
One of the features of this ranch is its location – not only the close proximity to town but the privacy as the property adjoins two of the largest ranches in Park County. From any location on the ranch you will enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding 14,000 ft. peaks, including the Continental Divide, Mt. Evans and Pikes Peak in the distance. The ranch is located in South Park which is known as the “fly fishing capital” of Colorado, providing not only a private fishing paradise, but unlimited fishing on some of Colorado’s finest rivers and streams is just minutes away. Four world-class reservoirs (Antero, Tarryall, Spinney Mountain and Eleven Mile) and the largest natural lake in the state, Jefferson Lake, are all within 30 minutes or less of the ranch and offer superior lake fishing as well.
