Site Information and Directions

The Battlemoor site is a privately owned ranch (gorgeous Highland cattle) in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains.  It boasts a hundred years of being a continuously working ranch. There are trees for shade, open fields perfect for battle, a small creek and lovely views of the mountains. The gracious owners are very pleased to host us; please join us in thanking them if you are fortunate enough to meet them! 

The ranch is north of Walsenburg Colorado, a small town approximately 60 miles north of the Colorado/New Mexico border.  Access to the ranch is from the major I-25 corridor onto a 5 mile stretch of county dirt road.  The last mile or so to the site is on the private land and is well groomed and easily passable.
