Phantom Canyon Ranches and protective covenants.)

This property consists of a 1/7 undivided interest with six other owners in ~245 acre Jackson Park West and a 1/6 undivided interest with five other owners in adjacent ~237 acre Jackson Park North. Jackson Park West has seven 2 1/4 acre building sites, each owned by a different owner, but the remaining land outside the building sites (over 220 acres) is owned and used in common by the seven owners. There are no building sites in Jackson Park North, just ~237 acres of beautiful land protected by a conservation easement. This makes a total of more than 450 acres for private riding and hiking just “out the backdoor.”

Jackson Park lies at elevations of about 6200–6400 feet and has a variety of terrain, ranging from rolling grasslands to spectacular rock outcrops with ponderosa and juniper. Approximately 2/3 of the property is excellent rolling pasture and the remaining 1/3 is steep and rocky.

The climate is moderate and dry with over 300 days of sunshine per year. Rainfall and snowfall are generally similar to, or slightly lower than, in Fort Collins (about 35 miles away) or Denver (about 100 miles away) – approximately 12” of total precipitation annually.

Access to the property is by Jackson Park Road through a locked gate on the north side of the Cherokee Park Road about 9 miles west of US 287.

The trout fishing in Phantom Canyon is outstanding and has been maintained as “catch and release” since 1981. Use of the Phantom Canyon Ranches common lands is shared by about 35 owners in the Phantom Canyon Ranches Landowners Association.

The Phantom Canyon Ranches protective covenants provide for viewshed protection for all owners of property in Phantom Canyon Ranches. There are architectural control provisions in the protective covenants, but there are no maximum or minimum square footage requirements.

The property has been used for livestock grazing since the 1870s and that use continues today. The property is leased to a local rancher. The lease is season to season–not long term. The property is partially fenced.

1) Phantom Canyon Ranches Overview

Over 10,000 acres of the original Phantom Canyon Ranch are protected by a combination of preserves, conservation easements and covenants which insure that more than 98% of the land will remain as open space, unchanged and unspoiled, to be enjoyed by future generations. Between 1987 and 1991 the original ranch was divided into 11 ranches–Phantom Canyon Ranches.

Phantom Canyon Ranches surround The Nature Conservancy’s Phantom Canyon Preserve. In addition, all of the landowners (currently there are about 35 owners) in Phantom Canyon Ranches have the exclusive use of nearly 1,400 acres including about 2½ miles of exceptional catch-and-release trout fishing, recreational use of a 275 acre stocked reservoir and access to 10 miles of hiking and equestrian trails. Phantom Canyon Ranches also adjoins two Colorado State Wildlife Areas totaling more than 30,000 acres.

2) Protective Covenants

In addition to conventional provisions, the master covenants address two special conservation issues:

• Building Sites – The land ownership associated with each building site is at least 35 acres–generally more. Originally, average building site density was less than one per 100 acres. Subsequently about two-thirds of the original building sites have been extinguished by conservation easements. The locations of the building sites have been selected to ensure privacy and compatibility with the surroundings. Each building site is approximately 2¼ acres and may be fenced. With respect to visibility of the building sites, each is (1) not generally visible from any other building site, (2) not generally visible from any common road or trail and (3) not conspicuously visible from the property as a whole, outside its individual viewshed.
• The Land – Outside the building sites, the land must remain as it is, undisturbed, to maintain its natural openness and its utility for potential ranching purposes. Off-road vehicle use is strictly prohibited.
