Bordering National Forest on 3 sides and located at 8000' elevation on the Hay Camp Mesa in Dolores, CO, Silver Springs Ranch is an extremely private high country recreational property consisting of over 1,120 acres with springs, ponds, lush meadows, ravines, and forests with pine, oak, and aspens. Improvements consist of a site built Hogan with a water well, septic, propane, and solar with back up generator, as well as an outdoor pavilion/gazebo for barbecues. There is also an old hunters cabin near one of the ponds. Elk, Deer, Turkey, Bear and Mountain Lion all frequent the ranch. This property lies within Colorado Game Management Unit # 73, allowing for over the counter rifle bull elk tags and rifle mule deer buck tags by draw. Private land owner tags are also available for both elk and deer. The perimeter of the ranch is fenced for livestock. Low ag taxes of only $1,849.72 a year. Silver Springs Ranch would be a great candidate for a conservation easement, or potential for subdividing with its location and National Forest boundary. For ease of access to various locations on the property there are 2 track roads cut along the majority of the ranch. There could be year round access from the west off of County Road 38. Currently there is 3 season access or year round on snowmobile through Forest Service Road 492.
