Ever since Joseph M. White trailed the first herd of cattle into the broad Gunnison Valley in 1871, the area has enjoyed a fabled reputation for some of the finest ranch land in the state. Today, Eagle Ridge Ranch, a Shared Ranch north of Gunnison, maintains that cherished agricultural tradition, along with an equally strong commitment to conservation and recreation. The net result is a unique development perfectly suited to the Gunnison Country lifestyle for generations to come. The Eagle Ridge Ranch is 4,900 deeded acres sweeping across the fertile Ohio Creek Valley only 8 miles north of the university town of Gunnison, Colorado. Operated for decades as a productive cattle and hay ranch, the property is now shared by 15 families who seek to steward the ranch for the maintenance of profitable agriculture, land conservation and enhancement of wildlife values. Situated at elevations of approximately 8000 to 9800 feet, the ranch encompasses rich hay meadow and cottonwood bottom land in its lower reaches, bordered by rolling sagebrush hills and groves of aspen and spruce at higher elevations. Unspoiled views throughout the ranch are far-reaching and include the remote West Elk Mountains to the west, the rugged Anthracite Range to the north and Flat Top and Red Mountains to the east. Amenities available to all owners in the Eagle Ridge Ranch are many and varied. Horse lovers will especially appreciate the Equestrian Center with its barn, stables and corrals. A lifetime of horseback riding is available on the ranch itself and the adjacent Gunnison National Forest. The ranch maintains 2600 acres as a common primitive area open to hunting, horseback riding and hiking. Two wilderness cabins are available in this area, available by reservation to property owners. Anglers will cherish the private trout fishing on the 3 miles of Ohio Creek that wind through the heart of ranch. This 20-foot wide stream is a major tributary of the Gunnison River, and holds fat brown and rainbow trout, some in the 16- to 20-inch class. Many carefully-engineered structures maximize prime trout habitat, and the stream is a particular delight for dry fly fishing. Casa Tres Unos at Eagle Ridge Ranch is a 6,468 square foot ranch house on 35.2 deeded acres within the Shared Ranch. Completed in 2009, it is of environmentally-friendly and efficient straw bale construction and features six bedrooms, five baths and a workout room. The custom kitchen holds a wood pizza oven and its main room is centered on an impressive fireplace. Finally, t
