The legendary Dallas Divide take its name from George M. Dallas, and is hailed as one of the greatest view quarters to the San Juan’s in all of South Western Colorado. The spectacular Mount Sneffels range is one of the most photographed mountains in all of Colorado. It’s no surprise this area draws people from all over to marvel at the snowcapped 14ers towering over ranges of dark timber and valleys of aspen groves. Where does Eagle Ridge Ranch fit into all of this? Right at the face of it all. This property is located perfectly between the iconic town of Telluride, with some of the best skiing in the county—to the quaint little town of Ridgway, where the fashion designer Ralph Lauren purchased his ranch.
Just shy of 400 acres, this Colorado ranch for sale could make for one grand home site overlooking vast wild acres of Aspens, Ponderosas, lush green meadows and mountain peaks that rival the Grand Tetons. With the high-end living of Telluride and it’s Alps-like skiing to the back door and Ridgway boasting its valley views to the front, this location gives you exposure to the best of what Colorado has to offer, while offering up the privacy from the everyday busy life.
Just to your north is the Uncompahgre National Forest, which spans across 955 thousand acres near the border of Utah. With an ample amount of outdoor recreational access at your fingertips this location gives you access to miles of trails to wander in the summer, chase golden colors in the fall, and snowmobile in the winter.
Sandwiched between two over-the-counter elk hunting units, this ranch is located in the limited unit of 61. This combination of units from high pressure to low is home to the largest elk herds in the area that also generate some of the largest class of bull elk in Western Colorado. A vast number of wild animals call this beautiful plateau home: from elk to mule deer, black bear to mountain lions, and even the beautiful Red Fox.
This is a ranch that needs to be seen, and felt to be understood.

Additional to Eagle Ridge Ranch is a beautiful property listed by T.D. Smith of Telluride Real Estate Corp.
“Eagle Ridge’s sense of arrival can only be described as idyllic — sitting on the edge of an escarpment in a lush mountain meadow, the residence is surrounded by Aspen and towering Ponderosa Pine. Its dry stack stone, vertical cedar siding and expansive glass compliment the clean architectural lines that blend perfectly with its mountain environment. Arguably, the residence commands one of the most dramatic viewscapes in the Rocky Mountain West. Its towering glass entry door perfectly frames Mount Sneffels and provides a hint of the views beyond — five 14,000 ft. peaks, fifteen 13,000 ft. peaks and ten 12,000 ft. peaks. Separate from the main residence is a ”toy garage” with caretaker apartment, above.”
