Cimarron Ranch Tract 10 is located 15 miles North of Weston Colorado via Hwy 12 West out of Trinidad Colorado. IF you don't mind a 50 minute drive to town for bigger shopping or a 30 minute ride to one of the closer mom and pop grocery stores on 15 miles of county year round maintained road, THEN this parcel is the best of the best in the area. Coming to take a look is a very good idea.
The land is mild compared to most properties in the mountains having views over 35 plus miles of hills, valleys, and mountains. There are several good building sites. Power and Phone are along the county road the land borders. Aspens stand in the meadows and Tall pines blanket the property, firs and ponderosa's. National Forest is only 4 miles away. It also faces South and West for great building locations and lots of sunshine.
In the 6 mile square area (a section) about 10 people live here year round. Most are retired Boomers. Several are EMT's and or volunteer firefighters. The station is only 7 miles down canyon and they are putting in a substation within a mile of this property. An ambulance is kept at the main station as well.
The weather is PERFECT. Literally, there is no place in the mountains of Colorado with a more even four season climate. You have exactly 3 months of each season. The average winter temp is the key, 50 degrees. Snow comes but does not stay more than a couple days. A month and a half out of the winter you can be outside working or playing on your property very comfortably.
The sun is more intense at 8600 feet. Summer average temp is about 80 degrees. Lots of sunshine in the morning, with afternoon clouds/showers, cooling the day to a feel of about 70 degrees during the hottest months of the summer. Monsoon rains begin in July and end late August. The driest months are Dec and Feb, when it's coldest there is little snow, not allowing it to cover the ground all winter. Heavy wet snows begin late winter into early spring. So it's summer rains and spring snows. Right when you need the water if you are growing anything.
Pueblo is an hour and twenty minutes for big box shopping. Most people go once a month to stock up, with a couple trips to Trinidad or a mom and pop store a month.
Las Animas County has 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, Toas, 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.
