From the Zillow listing:


Ragged Mountain Ranch is an incredible 2,959-acre property located on McClure Pass, 90 minutes from Aspen and Snowmass. Ranches of this size are rare in this part of Colorado. With over 17 miles of National Forest border, including two inholdings, numerous ponds, a small reservoir, drainage creeks, irrigated hay fields, dark timber, aspen groves, and several elegantly restored ranch cabins…there is nothing like this ranch, this close to a world-class resort. There are several gas wells on the fringes of the property, but those operations are well run and do not significantly impact the ranch other than to help with road maintenance. Stunning views of Ragged Mountain from everywhere on the ranch offer the opportunity for many possible trophy homesites with electricity. The restored “cabins” on the ranch are each defined by their character and history. Immediately upon entering the ranch sits the old “post office.” This fully restored cabin was once an actual post office. Next up as you drive through the ranch are the twin set of pristine Beuten cabins that would be excellent to house hunters, guests, or ranch staff. The current main house is known as the Clathis House and though small, has six bedrooms and majestic views. There is a large shop building and ranch manager’s residence also. All of these improvements are on the east side of the ranch.The west side is mainly undeveloped. The elk and mule deer hunting is superb, with large herds of elk and solitary big bulls and bucks cruising the ranch. Located in over-the-counter GMU 52, hunters may purchase bull elk tags for second and third rifle seasons and archery season wherever hunting licenses are sold. Landowner tags for mule deer and other elk seasons may be applied for through the Landowner Preference Program.
