Middle Elk River Ranch has 70 acres with 1/4 mile of both sides of the Elk River located just 7 paved miles north of Steamboat Springs, CO. Straddling the sought-after Elk River and just off of Routt County Road 129, this property is easy to access from town. The acreage north of the river (approximately 13) is completely covered in cottonwoods and pines, providing a private and quiet setting along the banks of the river. The south bank of the river is flanked by a steep hillside loaded with game trails that wind through the thick pine forest. The remaining acreage on the south side of the Elk River is a level to rolling aspen covered bench that attracts elk, deer, bear and an occasional moose. The property is within a 1/2 mile of the Routt National Forest and an additional 2 miles of public fishing on the Elk River. The ranch has no covenants, is close to a notable resort town and public land, has live water and great privacy. This property checks many of the boxes for quality, recreational acreage.
