Wilder on the Taylor Ranch is a haven for wildlife migration and is steeped with a rich ranching history
I had the opportunity to spend some time with Wilder on the Taylor Ranch Manager Don Sabrowski talking about the working ranch, the stables, wildlife and hunting opportunities on the nearly 2 million acres of adjacent National Forest.
Ranch Manager Don Sabrowski will lead ranching and horseback riding experiences for owners and guests at the 2,100± acre property located along the Taylor River.
Wilder on the Taylor is a cattle and Timothy hay ranch that has been continuously operated for nearly 100 years and now also features 26 homesteads. Nearly 95 percent of the historic Colorado ranch property is protected from future development and devoted to preservation of wildlife and water resource, and all agricultural and recreational pursuits such as fishing, hiking, biking, horseback riding and hunting are done with respect for the land and nature.
Don Sabrowski and his wife, Shelly, have managed and lived on the ranch since 1995. The Sabrowskis graduated from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces with degrees in animal science, and Don also double majored in agricultural economics. Prior to arriving in Gunnison County, they worked for a yearling cow/calf operation in Rye, Colo. At Wilder, not only do the Sabrowskis oversee the 300-acre Timothy hay crop and a herd of 50 heifers and five horses, they are involved in the property’s development, take care of maintenance, and welcome homeowners and guests.
As a master guide, Don offers ranching experiences such as moving cattle to the nearby Almont Triangle in May and bringing them back to the ranch in mid-July. Trail rides with Don on the wide selection of trails in the adjoining Gunnison National Forest can be arranged for anywhere between two hours and an overnight camping trip. Homeowners can ride the ranch’s horses or pasture their own horse at Wilder and have it cared for throughout the year. Watching the cutting and baling of hay also is an option.
As private fishing waters and riverfront home sites are increasingly hard to find Wilder on the Taylor offers two miles of fishing on the Taylor River, as well as pristine trout ponds and winding streams throughout this Colorado ranch. Your family, friends and clients will enjoy fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, hunting, and relaxing in this mountain paradise. Located near the historic town and ski area of Crested Butte this exclusive development offers a rare opportunity to create family memories for generations. No other development can offer a riverfront home site perched above the waterway – and at Wilder there are 12 Riverfront Homestead sites now available.
Property Description: 12 Riverfront Homestead sites overlooking the Taylor River and a part of the 2,100 acre shared ranch adjacent to over 2 Million acres of National Forest. Including the trophy trout swimming in the river, stream, and ponds on the ranch it is not uncommon to see bald eagles, mule deer, bighorn sheep, black bear, and migrating elk.
Location: Nestled below the Almont Triangle and in the Taylor River basin this property is approximately 5 miles from Almont, 20 miles from Crested Butte and 20 miles from Gunnison and the Gunnison Airport (GUC).
