When Lieutenant E. H. Ruffner made his historic reconnaissance of the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado in 1873, he made special note of a spectacular rock formation bisected by the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River called the Great Gate. Today, nearly 150 years later, the Great Gate has lent its name to Gateway Ranch at its feet, a signature property offering unparalleled views, trophy Stillwater and freestone trout fishing and direct access to public lands at every point of the compass. Perfectly suited for the recreation-oriented landowner, the Gateway Ranch also boasts two beautiful homes, a main residence of over 3000 square feet and a charming guest cabin, both of which serve as luxurious headquarters for a multitude of outdoor activities.

With no neighbors in sight, the views from Gateway Ranch are as spectacular as you'd find in a John Wayne Western. The impressive bluffs of the Great Gate itself make an immediate backdrop that rises sharply over 600 feet above the river. To the west lies Alpine Plateau, flanked with heavy spruce and aspen forests, and home to herds of trophy elk. To the east, Cannibal Plateau climbs above tree line to 12,000 feet and shelters the seldom-visited Powderhorn Wilderness Area. Almost endless foot or horseback forays into these adjacent areas are possible from the basecamp at Gateway Ranch. Smaller sections of Federal land both to the north and south complete a buffer that fully surrounds the ranch. Anglers will be delighted to find that Gateway Ranch adjoins two miles of public special regulation water on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River. Rainbow trout fishing is
