Located on both sides of the Piedra River and approximately halfway between Durango and Pagosa Springs, Colorado lies the Piedra River Ranch, the most completely appointed, gold medal riverfront property value that exists today in Southwest Colorado. There is a lot to be said about the Seller (a West Point Engineering graduate and veteran) who looked for years to find this property. And then, once acquired, designed it as the consummate riverfront ranch. This +/- 36 acres has no equal: encompassing both sides of the river without a homeowners association CCRs. Located less than an hour from the gate of Piedra River Ranch youll be going through security at Durango-La Plata County Airport, with daily, direct and nonstop service to Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Phoenix and Los Angeles (LAX summer months only). Its much faster than finding parking at a major airport and they still let you park for free for the first 30 minutes!

Theres a custom built fly fishing shed and a kids tree house on the river. Theres also a gazebo and stone fire pit for smores, cookouts and parties on the river with family and friends. The ranch has year-round senior-deeded irrigation rights 1.25 cfs and has no sharing of ditch usage or regulated days. One of the most liberal water rights that exist! The ranch is completely plumbed and has irrigation headers throughout to every corner of the property. The irrigation complements the duel irrigation system (2 side rollers) that irrigates +/- 30 acres of timothy/alfalfa hay with up to 3 cuttings a year. Customers line up to purchase the hay every year produced on PRR. A permitted well produces 35 gallons per minute.
