There are 1,500 acres of land on the Murphy-Larsen Ranch. The eleven home sites are located on the South Murphy-Larsen, a curving ridge that overlooks the Continental Divide. The home sites share an extensive network of trails that lead to The Routt National Forest and Wilderness lands. Homeowners have common ownership of the adjacent 875-acre North Murphy-Larsen.
This remarkable area in north Routt County is bordered to the East by the majestic Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area; on the North by the wild and scenic Elk River; and on the West by cattle ranches that extend all the way to Sand Mountain, and thousands more acres of national forest.
The cattle on the Murphy-Larsen Ranch are owned and managed by Davey Baron, owner of Elk River Livestock. Cattle grazing on Murphy-Larsen Ranch not only provide a great view but serve as a reminder that ranching and residential interests can be complementary. Grazing cattle on the ranch provides additional benefits including fire mitigation and agricultural tax status for homeowners. Homesites are protected by perimeter fencing maintained by the homeowners association.
