A historic legacy Colorado cattle ranch and hunting ranch is offered for sale

The Porter Ranch is one of the most historic ranches on the Western Slope, as the forebears of the Porter family gathered up a herd of cattle near Denver in 1880 and drove the herd all the way across the mountains to the Grand Valley on a 3-month cattle drive. It was one of the earliest settled ranches on the Western Slope. The Porter Family has held the ranch for the past 5 generations, raising hay, running cattle, and outfitting hunters on the ranch.

Centrally located on the I-70 corridor between Grand Junction, Aspen, Vail, and Glenwood Springs

The Porter Ranch is easily accessed from Exit 105 on I-70, which parallels the Colorado River as it flows through New Castle and then down to Rifle and Grand Junction. From I-70, it is a short 11-minute drive up Alkali Creek, or County Road 312, to the ranch gate. Glenwood Springs, with its famous Hot Springs Pool, Fairy Caves, and tourist attractions, is just 15 minutes further up I-70, and Aspen is a total of 1:15 from the ranch. Vail is 1:17 from the ranch.

Grand Junction, with its regional airport, Colorado Mesa University, Country Jam, world-class hospitals, and excellent concert venues, is about 1:25 down I-70 from the ranch gate. There are four different airports in fairly close proximity, including Aspen, Vail (which is actually Gypsum, under an hour from the ranch); Grand Junction; and Rifle airport, which doesn’t have connecting flights, but can land large jets. Rifle airport is less than half an hour from the Porter Ranch.
