If evening campfires under the stars, day hiking to scenic mountain summits, and living off-grid sounds like a dream, I invite you to see this property. Colorado can make your dreams come true. The central Rockies provide a variety of terrain from the towering peaks, the tree covered slopes, the flower filled meadows, and green grass valleys. The encompassing natural landscape offers beauty in every direction.
The Lost Creek Wilderness Area spans 119,000 acres over the Platte River Mountains, Kenosha Mountains, and Tarryall Mountains. Lost Creek Wilderness has fascinating rounded granite domes and granite arches that set it apart from the other Rocky Mountain areas. At the base of North Tarryall Peak sits 3.44 acres of flat valley land ready for a cabin or camper. You will be just 8 miles off US 285 giving you easy access to Como or Fairplay. The small towns that litter the valley have rich history that can be seen in the one-room schoolhouses, working dude ranches, and Denver, South Park, and Pacific Railroad museums. The mining booms brought settlers and the meadows brought ranchers. The land has been preserved so well you can look out over the range and see what they saw a hundred and fifty years ago. This is peaceful, undisturbed land that makes you long for a simpler world. The chaos of life melts away and leaves you in awe of your surroundings.
The lower elevation and easy access to trails make it a great place to hike, climb, and dry camp. The aspen groves and knobby rocks of the area give a uniqueness to the landscape. The cooler summer temps bring southerners who want to enjoy the hot months. Fly fishing and water recreation are popular in the lakes, rivers, and reservoirs in the surrounding state parks. Big and small game in the thousands of acres of public land brings hunters. Colorado is known worldwide for skiing. Boreas Pass is a 22 mile road on the Continental Divide that stretches from Como to Breckenridge reaching an impressive 11,481 ft. This scenic drive is popular for seeing old boxcars used at the old train station, one of the oldest cabins in the county, and the changing of the leaves in the fall. Breckenridge has shopping, eateries, and of course snow skiing, tubing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, etc. Looking for a hobby that doesn’t require work? The people in the valley take their stargazing very seriously. The dark skies and elevation are the perfect combination to see the heavens without a telescope. There is no shortage of activities to occupy your free time.
This location allows you to live without light pollution, noise pollution, or commercialization thanks to the surrounding mountains that provide protection from the outside world. However, we need access to modern amenities and major airports on occasion and Denver is conveniently 1 hour and 35 minutes northwest. You have the best of both worlds here.
