On SecondShelters.com: Top 5 Things To Look For In A Ranch Community


The dream of ranch ownership is real. And steeped within the fabric of American West ranching is Wilder on the Taylor, an iconic Colorado property sandwiched between Crested Butte and Gunnison with a lineage dating back to 1893.

As the story goes, three young men filed claims for a parcel of 160-acre homesteads that year. Within five years they were granted ownership, and soon, began occupying and working the land.

Today, the sprawling Colorado property spans more than 2,100 acres along the Taylor River, offering a rare ownership opportunity for those looking to claim a slice of the good life in a thriving ranch community.

Wilder on the Taylor is an angling paradise and a recreational and preservation-oriented community located on more than 2,100 acres. The historic cattle and hay ranch is conveniently situated on County Highway 742 between Gunnison and Crested Butte and surrounded by the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Each homestead is a minimum of 35 acres and has access to miles of private fishing water and trails, master guides, concierge services and a base camp for dining, relaxing and socializing, and the community is dedicated to preserving, protecting and perpetuating the traditions of western Colorado.
