SOLD--One of Colorado's Largest Remaining Mountain Ranches

DENVER, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Harrigan Land Company of Sedalia, Colorado, announces the September 29th closing on Monument Butte Ranch, near Steamboat Springs, in what was one of the state's largest acreage transactions of the year. "Monument Butte Ranch is one of the largest we've ever listed," said broker Hunter Harrigan. "A ranch of this significance only rarely comes on the market."

This expansive spread covers over 34 square miles on the north flank of the Flat Tops near Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Monument Butte Ranch, 30 miles southwest of Steamboat Springs, is one of the largest, contiguous mountain ranches remaining in the state of Colorado, having escaped for generations the slicing up of once-magnificent properties into lesser parcels. Monument Butte Ranch covers over 21,000 acres (34 square miles) on the north flank of the Flat Tops, and occupies elevations from 6800 to 8600 feet. The ranch contains thousands of acres of excellent mule deer and elk habitat consisting of rolling hills, thickets of oak brush, aspen forests, open meadows and pockets of dark timber.

Although wildlife is the prime draw at Monument Butte, it is also suitable for well-managed summer cattle grazing, as it contains hundreds of irrigated and sub-irrigated acres of meadows. Several of its thirty small reservoirs contain trout (some of trophy proportions), and many more may be further developed to make the ranch an outstanding stillwater fishing destination.

Monument Butte Ranch has a long history of being managed for wildlife, and deer and elk herds have responded exceptionally well. "One of the largest elk herds in the state lives here, and because the ranch is so large, what you do here really matters for wildlife," said Harrigan.  

The new ownership of Monument Butte Ranch exemplifies a growing trend among western landowners to keep large properties intact, rejecting fragmentation and intensive development and instead stressing solid stewardship of existing natural values. "The improvements the new owners make should have a positive impact for years to come," Harrigan concluded. "I'm thrilled that it will stay intact."
