About this property

Welcome to Ruby Lake Ranch...surrounded by the towering San Juan Mountains, this exquisite property boasts numerous cabin or yurt sites, multiple year-round streams, waterfalls, and fields of rocky mountain wildflowers. Build your backcountry dream lodge or Swiss chalet on this unique and beautiful piece of land art. 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 right off your back porch! 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. Relax on your front porch as you watch the abundant wildlife weave in and out of the meadows and thick forest woods. 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.
