Stephens North Park Ranch

Stephens North Park Ranch


This beautiful 841-acre ranch property is nestled in the “heart ”of the famed North Park hay country.  There are majestic views of snow capped peaks in all directions.

The Ranch is configured to function as a Horse property, Cattle operation, or as it presently does, a highly productive Hay Ranch.

At the Ranch headquarters, are two homes, a completely outfitted horse barn with six stalls, and a 6000 square foot calving barn. In addition, there is a 2000 sq ft Quonset Shop. This ranch property presently produces 900-1200 tons of hay annually on the 600 irrigated acres.

The remaining 241acres are used for grazing and are home to roaming herds of Pronghorn Antelope, and occasional Moose and Elk.

The Stephens Ranch is located 13 miles West of Walden and just 46 miles from Steamboat Springs. The ranch borders Highway 14 for excellent year-round access.

With 63% of Jackson County being public land, the North Park area is an outdoor recreational paradise. North Park has some of the best hunting and fishing in Colorado with endless trails, alpine lakes, and thousands of acres of public land to hunt on.

There are three adjudicated wells, one serving the homes and the other two for the livestock.

The entire 841-acre ranch is contiguous with no public roads bisecting it, and it is completely fenced and cross fenced.

This ranch is in excellent condition and is ready for the new owner to step in and begin operations with little or no additional work.


The Ranch is located at the intersection of State Highway 14 and Jackson County Road 24.

It is located 13 miles West of the Town of Walden and only 46 miles East of Steamboat Springs, CO.  There is easy access just off the State maintained highway.


This ranch produces between 900 – 1200 tons of the renowned “North Park” grass hay on 600 irrigated acres.

Additionally, the ranch is equipped with a Horse Barn and Calving Barn and two homes.  This is a very unique ranch property and could easily be transformed into a horse property or working cattle operation.

One home is presently used as a rental and the calving facilities could be rented out as well.

The horse barn has a wooden floor and can accommodate up to six horses. This stall capacity could be doubled and the facility could be used for boarding horses as well.
