The WCR Ranch is located on a small tributary of the upper Colorado River, approximately 35 miles in length. The creek rises in northwestern Grand County, in the Arapaho National Forest at the top of the continental divide and flows southeast toward the Colorado River. The WCR Ranch is home to Lodgepole and Ponderosa Pines, Douglas-Firs, and Aspen stands. The creek itself meanders through a wide-open meadow closely cropped with willows, cut banks, and a variety of alpine wildflowers. Surrounding the creek are majestic peaks that reach elevations of 12,000ft and higher. The WCR Ranch is truly a wild place.
