Poso Creek Ranch a Private Mountain Inholding Surrounded by Rio Grande National Forest. A perfect place to unplug from todays hectic lifestyle. The story began 45 years ago, back in 73. A U.S. Air Force officer found Poso Creek Ranch, comprising +/-160-acres within the Rio Grande National Forest, tucked away about a mile behind Poso Mountain. He called on a few fellow officers and friends to share in his vision and join in the purchase. They secured a place for their families, surrounded by millions of acres of forest. They camped in the early years, then pooled their resources and a custom cabin was finished in 1997, powered by solar with backup generator and propane. Families have enjoyed trout fishing, ATV rides, mountain biking, hiking on the miles of surrounding national forest trails, campfires and smores around the fire pit in the evening, and an occasional Thanksgiving holiday at the ranch. The families have also enjoyed several successful elk and mule deer hunts. Thus, the legacy of Poso Creek Ranch was created. Over 40 years the partners families grew, with children and then grandchildren coming along. Life happens, generations pass, and for the very first time, this National Forest Inholding is being offered. Perhaps its your time for your family?
