The hand-built line shack still borders the Purgatoire Can-yon Rim. Watch the nesting Peregrine Falcons, explore miles of canyons and the numerous hand-quarried stone homesteads on the ranch. The ranch consists of +/- 3728 deeded and secluded acres and is located in Las Animas County, the largest county by area in Colorado. Line Shack Ranch is halfway between La Junta and Kim, Colorado +/- 12 miles west of Hwy. 109 on County Road 177.9 near the Eight Mile and Miller Canyon intersection. Spanning 9 miles from the round top mesa to the Purgatoire River Breaks, the Line Shack Ranch overlooks the Purgatoire River. The east side is a private holding and the west side is the 25,000-acre Purgatoire Ranch, enrolled in Colorado's Ranching for Wildlife. The north border along the Purgatorie River is thousands of acres of public Comanche National Grasslands, an incredible area that has limited public access. The varied terrain from round top mesa grasslands holding antelope to the Purgatorie River Breaks carrying B&C quality mule deer, all that with +/- 800 ft. of vertical... A generation is not enough time to explore the miles of canyons and trails, creek bottoms, native ruins or even an old mineshaft that may hold secrets to the lost gold of the Purgatoire. The round top mesa hosts an incredible array of early stone homesteads, each a living work of art. This property would be considered a state park in a lot of locations, with some remote canyons only viewed by the astronauts! Improvements include dozens of hand-quarried rock homesteads from the 1800s to early 1900s. In addition to 2 new solar wells with drinkers and 2 improved springs, the Line Shack Ranch features 7 game-holding waterholes for the bow hunter to stake out, as well as bordering and accessing a couple thousand acres of National Grassland that has very little, if any, public access. Theres perimeter fencing and a good road system. Tired of this volatile stock market? Invest in a land investment that is also a family hunting retreat. Don't worry, youre not buying anybodys dream house. Hunting is second to none. Colorado's Plains Elk units have
