Elk Trail Ranch is a forested 299.4-acre property located in Colorado?s Las Animas County and featuring thriving game populations, stunning mountain views, lush meadow pastures, and unmatched privacy.
Six adjoining parcels comprise this 1-mile x 0.5-mile property, which boasts a landscape defined by ponderosa pine, open meadows, rock formations, game trails, creek beds, ponds, and one-of-a-kind views of southern Colorado?s majestic Spanish Peaks. Power is available on the property, which is accessed by a year-round road. The property also has great southern exposure for solar-power options, and has potential for wind-energy strategies to supplement readily available electricity. The ranch has little exposure to public roads, ensuring a tranquil environment in which game and wildlife ? including elk, deer, bear, lynx, bobcat, mountain lion and turkey ? remain undisturbed. The owner reports the property is also home to the rare tufted eared squirrel.
As an added bonus, the property has an existing hunting cabin, with power leading to it. Groceries, gas and other services are just 13 miles away; I-25 can be accessed within 20 minutes. Pueblo is just over 1 hour away; Colorado Springs is 2 hours north; Denver is 3 hours north; and Santa Fe is just over 3 hours south.
Elk Trail Ranch is an ideal private hunting retreat, with multiple building sites for a new owner envisioning a retirement home, vacation home or horse ranch. A new owner could plan on heating an eventual home with selectively harvested older wood and cull trees on the property. Off-site recreational opportunities abound, as Las Animas County offers some of North America?s best fishing and big-game hunting, and is reportedly home to one of Colorado?s largest elk herds.
An additional 38.15 acres may be available.
As another option, the northern portion of this property (totaling 179.72 acres, with the addition of another parcel) may be purchased separately from the remaining acreage for $520,000.
