Located just outside of Placerville, Colorado, right down the road from the iconic ski and resort town of Telluride, is this bountiful 2,258-acre ranch! Right between Lone Cone Peak and Flat Top Peak of the San Juan Mountain range is the outstretched Beaver Mesa. Wilson Mesa Ranch sits right at the base of this mesa, where the mountain ranges level out across lush, green mountain pastures lined with clusters of mature aspens. Views of these ranges are completely unobstructed from the ranch, with white capped peaks towering over dark timber and aspens climbing out from green meadows. Water is life in Colorado, and this ranch obtains plenty of it for irrigation from the Woods Lake reservoir. Large herds of elk roam this ranch because of its abundance of feed and water. Own a true piece of the American west.
