Trail Creek Ranch is the epitome of the west with all its beauty and history. The view from the historic homestead is of the confluence of Trail Creek and the North Cache La Poudre River. Beautiful meadows, trout filled streams, and mature pines with gorgeous rock outcroppings make this private ranch a dream. From the ranch gate you follow the North Poudre River to the main homestead, located at the confluence of Trail Creek, a very fishable stream sustaining good populations of Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Brook Trout. The historic home and outbuildings speak of a time long past and yet not so long ago. Sue Brackenbury recalls telling her family over the years that “this was the piece we should keep”. When you arrive at the property you immediately understand what she means. This ranch is truly “Colorful Colorado”. The 200 acre ranch has been leased by a family member and neighbor for years and years and is in good condition. It offers some grazing and hay production but is mostly about the setting and the rivers. The property boasts approximately ½ mile of Trail Creek and ½ mile of Poudre River on both sides. The improvements on the property are an updated 2728 square foot 1870s home with 3 Bedrooms and many modern conveniences. It is the “perfect” getaway cabin/family retreat (sleeps up to 12). Much of the main home has been remodeled with additional sleeping quarters and kitchen and baths. There is also a good storage barn and an old historic barn on the property. Additional historic outbuildings are also located around this homestead. The hunting on the property is good for Mule Deer and Elk, with a draw required for Mule Deer. The quality of animals is average with Elk being there some during season and more during the spring and winter months. This ranch is located in Game Management Unit 191 with over the counter elk hunting in archery, 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons. The property is located just 45 minutes Northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado on a well maintained gravel road. It is also just 20 minutes from the small Colorado Town of Livermore. The area is sparsely populated but does offer some excellent neighbors for those times of need. Please give us a call for a private tour of this fine ranch property.
