Cimarron Ranch Lot 57 has a good combination of all the best topographical and vegetative features our area has to offer. With it's Southern exposure looking into New Mexico, Eastern looking back to Fisher's Peak over Trinidad, Colorado, and Western views of the Sangre De Cristo Range, you have the best of Colorado Rocky Moutain peace and quiet.
Driving off the canyon floor up to the private build site with power, you make your way through some aspens and firs surrounded by tall ponderosa pine. From the buildsite hiking north up the shared, with only one neighbor and NO legal obligation, jeep trail or through the pine covered valley, you find several benches as you rise to the top mesa. Sandstone formations as large as small cars jut out here and there. The main valley could be used as a catch pond with a little dirt work, creating a damn. Use either a pool liner or some good clay to get the pond to hold water year round, topping it off with the overflow from your cistern one day. Water is great in this area.
The property is located about 40 minutes West of Trinidad, Colorado, via Hwy 12 and Wet Canyon Road.
