MEXICAN RIDGE RANCH - Straddling the crest of Mexican Ridge near Rabbit Ears Peak in southwest Jackson County, this 1,277+/- acre ranch is highlighted by excellent big game hunting and awesome panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ranges of North Park. The location, vegetation and topography of the ranch result in outstanding wildlife habitat supporting abundant populations of elk and mule deer. The headwaters of a number of creeks originate on the ranch and their horseshoe-shaped valleys provide diverse slopes and aspects facing every direction. Hillsides of aspen and conifers provide plentiful wildlife cover and bedding areas, which are balanced by transition areas and open parks with ample feed. Located along the top of the ridge with exceptional vistas, the four-bedroom log cabin is self-contained with its own solar/generator power, water and septic. There are also two smaller rustic cabins near the entrance and electric service is located within Ã¿Â½ mile of the ranch boundary. A network of internal roads provide vehicular access to the improvements and throughout the ranch. Although the property is principally utilized for summer recreation and autumn big game hunting, proximity to some of the best snowmobiling in the state is a bonus for winter usage. Located in a private valley in the southwest corner of North Park, the ranch is approximately 35 minutes from Walden and just over an hour from Steamboat Springs and Kremmling.
