Lying at the top of Currant Creek Pass, above all other private land holdings, is the 1,540+/- acre Currant Creek Pass Ranch. The ranch is offered as a whole, as 640+/- acres or as this listing which is the 900 +/- acres lying west of HWY 9. The ranch boasts classic South Park, Colorado sweeping views and the added unique characteristics of timberland found above 9,000 feet in elevation. A short two-hour drive from Denver and an even shorter hour and twenty minutes from Colorado Springs will find you at the heart of the ranch.
