Hidden Lake Ranch represents all facets of a legacy retreat with nearly 3 miles of exceptional fishing on the fully-enhanced Weminuche Creek, 5 fully-stocked alpine lakes up to 15 acres in size, and trophy big game hunting. There is a small “lodge” style cabin on the ranch along with several smaller cabins. Hidden Lake Ranch is ideally positioned for access to nearby town amenities, such as Wolf Creek Ski Area, while offering the idyllic seclusion and 100% private live water so often desired in a trophy Rocky Mountain ranch.
Hidden Lake Ranch is located in one of the premier valleys in the Colorado Rockies. Perfectly positioned in the Upper Piedra Valley, the ranch enjoys sweeping views to inspiring peaks and direct access to scenic public lands. The ranch is situated approximately 23 miles northwest of Pagosa Springs via Piedra Road, which is also known as National Forest Road 631. The ranch is easily accessed by private and charter aircraft at nearby Archuleta County Airport at Stevens Field. Commercial air service is available via nearby Durango at the La Plata County Airport, which offers daily direct service to Denver, Phoenix and Dallas/Fort Worth.
Hidden Lake represents all facets of a legacy sporting ranch located in Colorado’s scenic Upper Piedra River basin. The nearly 3 miles of exceptional fishing on the Weminuche Creek has been professionally enhanced. This in addition to the 5 five ponds and lakes throughout the ranch, one of which is approximately 15 acres in size and boasts a newly built pavilion gathering area complete with a manicured lawn setting, fire pit and dock. Each pond has been stocked with a variety of trout species, with some documented trout reaching 30”+ in length and 15lbs in size. The Hidden Lake Ranch provides an opportunity for the most discerning angler to catch up to 11 different trout species. A custom private bridge over Weminuche Creek was recently installed providing convenient access to numerous postcard worthy home sites. Big game opportunities exist onsite, as well as on the adjacent national forest lands. The pristine meadows and ideal wildlife habitat onsite attract elk and mule deer, with some portions of the ranch being used as elk calving grounds year after year. Under current ownership, Hidden Lake has been transformed into a “best of the best” trophy recreational ranch, even by Colorado’s high standards.
