Description

The Disappointment Creek Ranch is a true cowboy cattle operation, located in Disappointment Valley in Southwest Colorado, about 65 miles from Telluride, Colorado. The ranch is strategically placed throughout its 4,116.65+/- deeded acres and its 81,133+/- leased acres of USFS and BLM land, making for a highly successful cattle operation. The ranch holds the sole permits on the USFS and BLM acreage, which is a rarity and adds to the asset to the ranch operations. The ranch currently has 7,095 AUM on USFS and BLM for cattle operations.The ranch operations have been skillfully thought out, leading to 60 years of good ranching. The calves are processed on the winter range when they come off the summer permit, then weighed on the ranch scales and shipped out or weaned. If you choose to wean the calves, there is a weaning fence between the fields, creating less stress on the calves. The ranch can be run by two good ranch hands and occasional day help, making the cost per head much lower than most ranching operations. The corral work is done at a central location, allowing branding in the spring to weighing and shipping calves in the fall. The acreage includes some irrigated land surrounding the corrals and is critical in this operation. The water comes from Disappointment Creek and is good until early July, giving the ranch one cutting of hay, and approximately 300 round bales, leaving good pasture for the fall. The ranch has enough acreage that you rarely have to feed cows as there is enough pasture to graze. The cattle are trailed to their summer and winter range but never leave the ranch property, so no trucking is needed. Improvements are spread throughout the ranch and leased acreage. At the working facilities for cattle and the hay fields, improvements in place are a 12 x 20 workers cabin/cook shack, a certified set of scales, a hydraulic chute, and a calf table. On the USFS permit section of the ranch where summer operations take place, there is a 1,326 square foot 2-bedroom cabin with indoor spring-fed plumbing, a one-room bunk house, a tack room, and additional corrals. The cabin and bunk house are privately owned and will be sold along with the cattle permit. The ranch is in Game Management Units 70 & 711 which are well-known destinations for big game hunting. These GMUs offer outstanding elk and Mule deer; you may also encounter black bears and mountain lions in the area. The region is home to a variety of smaller animals, such as beavers, river otters, and minks, which can be found in and around the creek. Disappointment Creek is a popular destination for birdwatchers, as the area is home to a variety of species, such as bald eagles, ospreys, and peregrine falcons. Overall, big game hunting in the rugged terrain of Disappointment Creek offers an opportunity for hunters to experience the region's unique wildlife and landscape. With the majestic beauty of Colorado's La Plata Mountain Range as its backdrop, this ranch offers an opportunity to view a diverse array of wildlife in their natural habitat. Today, the Dissapointment Creek area is protected as part of the San Juan National Forest, and visitors can explore the remains of historic cliff dwellings, mining, and ranching operations as well as the natural beauty of the canyon and surrounding wilderness. The Dolores River is nearby, Telluride is 65 miles away with festivals in the summer and world class skiing in the winter, and Canyonlands National Park is not far for hours of hiking and ATVing. Disappointment Creek Ranch is anything but a disappointment, it offers a true cowboy way of life in a beautiful and very private setting.
