Brumley Aspen Waters Ranch - Dolores County, Dunton, CO
The meadows of Brumley Aspen Waters Ranch rise gently from the shores of Groundhog Reservoir to dense aspen and dark timber forests, enjoying a 3.5-mile boundary with thousands of acres of San Juan National Forest. The assembly of the ranch began in 1900 and has never left the family’s hands. It is rare to find a ranch so raw in the beauty that has remained with one family owner for this length of time.
The abundance of water, massive aspen groves, dark timber, plentiful elk herds, quality grazing, and beautiful scenic views make the ranch unique. Numerous ponds dot the land, and at least two creeks cross the ranch. Beaver ponds have created a fishery that the next owner can enhance. Groundhog Creek is a year-round stream that feeds into Groundhog Reservoir, a designated Colorado State Wildlife Area.
The ranch backdrop features two iconic Colorado mountains, Lone Cone Peak and Groundhog Mountain, both over 12,000 feet in elevation. The lush grass and numerous watering holes allow the grazing of up to 400 yearlings each summer should the owner decide to do so.
Wildlife is plentiful, and the ranch is well known as an elk calving ground; each spring, hundreds of cow elk make their way down from the forest into the lush meadows of the ranch to birth their offspring. Of course, the bull elk follow in the fall, and the hunting and wildlife viewing is world-class.
A new three-bedroom and loft home is nicely finished and has great views. Located near the house are an older cabin and workshop. The Brumley Aspen Waters Ranch is a special offering looking for its next steward.
