    Description

    Not many properties can boast being the location of a well-known film, but Lightner Creek Ranch, just northwest of Durango, can. This very private ranch was a shooting location for the 1991 hit film City Slickers, starring Billy Crystal and Jack Palance. Today, this 230 acre ranch is minus the film crew, but rich with solitude, mountain views and close access to some of the most diverse recreational opportunities in Colorado. Lying at approximately 7300 feet, Lightner Creek Ranch is primarily covered with shrubland, interspersed with meadows and a few evergreens. This habitat, combined with the intermittent streams of Lightner Creek and Hopkins Draw, makes it an attractive location for mule deer, bird life and small mammals twelve months of the year. Wildlife lovers will find much to enjoy in this quiet retreat at the foot of the La Plata Mountains, which dominate the views to the north. This property would be perfectly suited as a convenient weekend getaway or a permanent home for those who love the Four Corners Country. Privacy is a huge asset at Lightner Creek Ranch, as its access is protected by Destination Ranch, just downstream. As private as it is, the ranch is nonetheless only ten miles from Durango, the cultural and commercial hub of southwest Colorado. Durango is home to Fort Lewis College, the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and a plethora of cultural, shopping and dining attractions. This private retreat is located in the midst of outdoor recreation opportunities of amazing variety. Hunters can find mule deer on the ranch itself, and Game Management Unit 74, which surrounds the ranch, is 68% public land, offering many opportunities for trophy mule deer and elk, along with black bear, mountain lion and turkey. Fishing on the Animas River at Durango is Gold Medal Water and is accessible to both wade and float fishermen. The Animas is also superb for rafting and kayakers. Winter recreation in the area is highlighted by Durango Mountain Resort, a major downhill ski area with more than 1500 acres of terrain, only about 45 minutes from the ranch. Ski touring, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are also popular throughout the area in the winter months. Of course, just relaxing and enjoying the solitude at Lightner Creek Ranch is a perfectly acceptable winter pastime as well! Roads to the ranch are maintained year-round. Rare indeed are properties like Lightner Creek Ranch that offer solitude reminiscent of the Old West, and yet easy accessibility to the New West of a cosmopolitan small city like Durango. The movie stars may be gone, but the real stars remain at Lightner Creek Ranch: privacy, solitude and simple Rocky Mountain grandeur that will live on long after Hollywood is only a memory.
