The property is a recreational base for many activities with over 300+ days of sunshine and fresh mountain air. Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, ATV use, camping and hunting on the ranch or the bordering BLM. Mack Gulch Ranch offers superb big game hunting. Resident elk and deer populations move in and out of the Currant Creek drainage which is located just west of the ranch. Mack Gulch and the bordering BLM land provide ideal bedding, cover and habitat for large game. The ranch is located in GMU 58. Because the land exceeds 160 acres in size, the property can be enrolled in the Landowner Preference Program allowing for additional game tags to be drawn each year. Close to the ranch, you can enjoy world class rafting on the Arkansas River and fishing on Spinney Mountain, Eleven Mile Reservoirs and the South Platte River. In addition, in winter months take a 90 minute day trip to Breckenridge or Monarch Mountain for skiing and snowboarding fun.
