The Arkansas river flows near the route to the property and is currently being developed by Pueblo and the County to include riverside parks and the restoration of the old stone barn built by Charles Goodnight of the "Goodnight-Loving Cattle Trail" (Lonesome Dove) fame. Best of all the land is located in one of the 'Banana Belt weather' areas of Colorado which means you can ride your horse throughout the entire year.
The property is within a very horse-friendly HOA which allows trail riding on the rest of the original ranch in addition to the 183 acres. The acreage consists of rolling terrain with a seasonal pond and is studded by Pinon and Cedar trees. Within the rolling terrain and the level areas there is an excellent grass base consisting mostly of grama and a dry-land grass mix. There is a ravine with some rock outcropping running through the east side of the property which feeds the seasonal pond during heavy rains. Wildlife seen in the area include antelope. mule deer, occasional elk, eagles, owls, humming birds, rabbits, and coyotes.
The views from the property include the Wet Mountains to the west, Pikes Peak to the north, Pueblo city lights at night to the east, and the Spanish Peaks to the south. The sunsets and sunrises are gorgeous and because of the temperate climate can be throughly enjoyed sitting outside.
The electrical is to the property line and is easily accessible. The wells in the area have good water flow. The entire 183 acre perimeter is fenced and ready for development.
