Driving US 25 along the Front Range is beautiful. Heading south you will pass Denver, Colorado Springs and Pueblo. The Colorado Rockies provide a beautiful backdrop to these mountain metropolises. The majority of people don’t realize the real beauty lies on the back side of those mountains. Down the back slopes of the Wet Mountains lie mountain valleys and meadows full of wildflowers, grasses, and hundreds of acres of evergreens and aspins! On the far side of the valley, the Sangre de Cristo mountains line the western horizon. The valley in between is where the true Colorado experience begins.
This area, The Wet Mountain Valley, is known for tranquility. You will be surrounded by nature and spared from the commercialization and industrial pollution of the cities. The State Forests encompass the mountain region and provide thousands of acres of public land. This is raw, unspoiled land ready to be enjoyed by nature enthusiasts and relaxation seekers.
2.5 acres gives you ample space to build without having neighbors close.There are natural clearings among the trees perfect for a mountain cabin or an RV parking pad. It will be just you and the wildlife! Peak through the evergreens to see the hills and mountain terrain.
Colorado is a natural playground for hikers, bikers, climbers, and campers. There are hundreds of trails and summits to concur. There is fishing, rafting, kayaking, and water sports in the many rivers and reservoirs of the area. Deweese is a popular reservoir just 30 minutes south. Hunters love the big game such as deer, elk, and bear. Skiing is sacred in Colorado! Breckenridge boasts world-class alpine activities and luxury resorts and is just 2 hours from your new mountain home.
The valley gives you seclusion which is perfect for a mountain getaway but the cities aren’t far. Westcliffe and Silver Cliff are south 25 min, Salida is 27 min west, and Canon City is 41 min east. The small communities scattered throughout the valley are worth your visit. Westcliffe is passionate about their stargazing and Dark Sky title. The Royal Gorge Railway in Canon City makes for a great historical adventure. Colorado Springs and Pueblo are an hour and 30 minutes away. There you can find all of your big city amenities and entertainment.
