88 The LandReport | R O C K I E S 2 0 1 8 LANDREPORT.COM 10 Most larger holdings in the Rockies are not contiguous. More often than not, they consist of separate tracts cobbled together by different owners with public and private inholdings checkerboarding the landscape. And in many cases, neighbors and even the public have the right to cross a ranch in order to access adjacent lands. Not so at the Motherwell. A single privately deeded block, these 16 square miles rise from the Williams Fork River some 2,500 feet to the lava cliffs that mark the ranch's southern boundary with the Routt National Forest. In addition to superb fishing on 3.3 miles of Williams Fork frontage down low, the Motherwell has three high-mountain lakes ranging in size from 10 acres to 16.5 acres and more than 90 natural and man-made ponds. These aquatic resources are complemented by the Motherwell's location in Northern Colorado's coveted Game Management Unit 12. "The overall hunting experience offered at the Motherwell is so exceptional that we stay fully booked year after year, without the need to do any advertising," says Brian Gardner, the ranch's executive director. The Motherwell can be managed for a variety of grazing options, including a ranch herd of 200 to 250 head as well as a yearling program.
