One of the finest properties in the entire Dolores River Valley, Bayless Ranch is a pristine river retreat beyond comparison, sure to capture the imagination of young and old alike. Over 393 acres of private undeveloped meadows are accentuated by copses of narrowleaf cottonwood, pine, aspen, and willow along over 1.6 miles of the wild and free-flowing Upper Dolores River. Wide gradual riffles give way to long gentle glide pools as one of the finest trout rivers in Colorado ambles between outcroppings of ancient red sandstone; an unmistakable distinguishing characteristic of the Dolores Valley. Over 5 CFS of water rights irrigate 4 fenced and gated lush pastures.
