Valley View Ranch is located just two miles from the town of Pagosa Springs with sweeping, unobstructed views of the Continental Divide and bordering the 2.5-million acre San Juan National Forest. The 1,353-acre historic homestead runs 900 yearlings on the ranch and adjacent national forest. Its scenic valley setting and interesting topography ranging from valley floor to gently rolling hills and panoramic mountain views has made it one of the most photographed ranches and was once featured in an issue of National Geographic covering “The Great Southwest.” Valley View Ranch has a combination of natural beauty, location, wildlife, agricultural productivity, year-round access and is minutes from Wolf Creek Ski Area. The property includes 11+ CFS of senior water rights, three separate ditch rights, one artesian well producing 350 GPM, seven ponds and springs. Half the mineral rights and geothermal rights are included in the sale. Some of the historical improvements date back to 1898 and 1945. Valley View Ranch would be a great candidate for a conservation easement or has potential for development with its location and forest boundary. The ranch is permitted for 536 yearlings from June 1 – early October. The ranch is only 10 minutes from the Pagosa Springs Airport and one hour from Durango.
