There are also 100 miles of snowmobiling and cross country skiing trails, most of which are groomed, within 1.5 miles of the upper property entrance. The ranch could easily be considered the entranceway to the notorious Flat Tops Wilderness Area. An extensive network of roads throughout the ranch offers everyone the opportunity to purchase their own piece of beautiful Colorado countryside. The topography of West Elk Ranch offers magnificent long-range views. Sopris Mountain, The Mamm Peaks and the Grand Hog Back are three of the most recognized ranges viewed from the beautiful building sites located throughout the property. The ranch provides an extremely valuable and pristine habitat for many species of wildlife, including big game species like elk, mule deer, black bear and wild turkeys. This area has one of the largest herds of elk in the entire state. For the avid fisherman, the ranch is strategically located between the Colorado River and the White River. Other recreational choices in close proximity are the Rifle Gap State Park, Harvey Gap State Park, Rifle Mountain Park and Rifle Creek Golf Course.
