Located approximately 25 miles south of Pagosa Springs, Alpine Lakes Ranch offers more than 8,600 acres of land divided into lots that consist of 35 acres or more. These lots also include roads and central water to the property line. The Alpine Lakes Ranch neighborhood is divided into four areas: Elk Ridge, Coyote Park, Ponderosa Hills, and Alpine Meadows. Alpine Lakes Ranch features its own stocked alpine lake (Spence Lake), water rights to other lakes, and its own renewable water resources for residential use, which serves all homes.
