Description

Welcome to Ruby Lake Ranch...the epitome of pure Colorado bliss. Surrounded by the towering San Juan Mountains, this group has 16 parcels for a total of 140 acres! With Alpine mountain lake access, multiple year-round streams, waterfalls, and fields of rocky mountain wildflowers. This ranch is one of the largest land holdings in the county where 89% of the land is owned by the BLM or USFS. A piece of art like this property is rarely offered for public sale and is often a family heirloom passed down from generation to generation. Sit back and enjoy the dark skies at night or gaze up at the towering peaks of Battleship Mtn, North Lookout Peak, and Paradise Basin during the day. Mature aspen and 100-year-old spruce trees abound amidst a few open and rolling green grass meadows. The golden colors in the fall create a magical yellow brick road straight from the movies. Enjoy privacy and seclusion with your very own slice of Rocky Mountain heaven yet enjoy the convenience of a paved highway just 2 miles away via the well maintained 2wd county road. A lifetime of backcountry adventure awaits you! Enjoy high country fishing at the private access Alpine Lake, hike to the colorful and vivid sky-blue Columbine Lake, or snowmobile and ski to world renown Ophir Pass between Silverton and Telluride. The hunting and recreational opportunities at your fingertips are endless. Patience will reward you with friendly sightings of the local Bull Elk, Mule Deer, Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep, Black Bear, or friendly Fox. Remnants of a bygone era still showcase its Colorado heritage where the nearby mining tunnels produced over 50 tons of silver ore per day in the early 1900s. Frame or enjoy deciphering the historic treasure maps, original surveys, land patents, and plats on file from the late 1800s. As if ownership of this magnificent landscape wasnt enough, the owner is willing to transfer all Mineral Rights with the sale of the property. Ownership of mineral rights in Colorado are extremely rare! Other offerings are available in a variety of price ranges.
