In the video and pics, we began our tour of the ranch on the eastern end of the meadow seen on the topo and aerial below. The meadow area runs the width of the property with roads in parallel on the north and south side of the valley. A small spring and catch pond are located in the valley as well. Another old jeep trail, more suited for a four-wheeler, runs up the northern forty hillside to a flat mesa top. And another road rises to the southern large mesa from the western boundary off the valley floor.
Once on top of the southern mesa, we found park meadows and ponderosa park land for approximately 50 acres. The land is extraordinarily flat on top of the mesa. The best build spot on the property is located on the southwestern mesa edge, overlooking miles and miles of rolling forested hills and snow capped Rocky Mountains. The multi-colored aspen valley leads your eye to the clouds above the peaks. Scanning the horizon over New Mexico to the east, you can see Fishers Peak and Raton Pass, 20 miles away over Trinidad Colorado.
The land is fully fenced. The one and a half mile access off the county road is a deeded access. 100% minerals. There are no water rights or encumbrances, such as easements or leases tied to the land. Phone is by very good cell. Power is along the southern boundary. The spring has not been adjudicated or developed, could be though. The build site on top of the mesa faces southwest, with full southern exposure from east to west. The elevation from the mesa top is around 8200 feet.
The property lies approximately 15 minutes west of Aguilar, Colorado. 35 minutes to Trinidad, Colorado, 1 hour from Pueblo, Colorado, and an hour and a half from the Colorado Springs airport. National Forest and Wilderness Area are near by.
Las Animas County contains the San Isabel National forest and Several Wildlife Areas, Wilderness Area, and 7 lakes all within an hour and a half drive. Most of the parks and lakes are between 5 and 45 minutes of Trinidad or any parcel of land.
From Trinidad you can hit Santa Fe, Taos, Angle Fire, Red River, and Monarch all in 3 hours time. Wolf Creek is an hour more. Two hours away is the Rio Grande National forest and San Juan Wilderness, some of the wildest country left in the lower 48. The last known Grizzly in Colorado was found in the San Juan Wilderness.
