Great care has been taken to keep the ranch’s pristine identity and a major forest management plan has greatly improved the healthy forest that is an integral part of the ranch. A remarkable trail system has been implemented to create access to all parts of the property. Part of the Floresta mine remnants and remaining buildings have been preserved in allowing one to still have a sense of the mining operation that years ago was a vibrant part of days gone by. You can still walk the narrow gauge train bed path that once served the town-site. Truly is a one-of-a-kind mountain retreat!
