The trail starts here. Aim High is a unique Colorado mountain escape that inspires the modern day pioneer and adventurer to experience a diverse topography along with exceptional recreational opportunities. If you aspire to relax in a quiet mountain meadow surrounded by rock formations and aspen and spruce forests then you are right on target at Aim High. Find remnants of an old pioneers homestead, glory holes for gold seekers, and an old wagon trail used in the late 1800s for the transport of supplies to and from Cripple Creek (The Worlds Largest Gold Camp). An old pioneer named Smitty smartly chose to settle himself here and above his old homestead is a prime location to build a modern day mountain cabin. This natural building site overlooks the meadow with views of Mt. Pisgah and the snow-capped Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range. A seasonal stream crisscrosses and sub-irrigates a portion of the meadow with game trails meandering through the property. Impressive rock formations covered with oak shrubbery rise from the terrain to provide a colorful backdrop to Colorados ever-blue skies. This serene valley is a gateway into thousands of acres of BLM Lands which border the property on (3) sides. A 20 minute hike down an aspen filled trail gently leads to a surprising Box Canyon where you are surrounded by towering rock walls and a year-round trout stream. This private canyon offers fishing, splashing through its cool waters, hiking, camping, hunting and more into the expansive BLM territory. Get ready to Aim High and set your sights on the Colorado outdoor pursuits that matter most to you - hiking, rock climbing, fishing, target shooting to archery from big to small game hunting (rocky mountain elk, mule deer, bear, mountain lion, turkey), you will find it all in this secluded yet accessible mountain hideout. It is centrally located to Colorado ski resorts, river rafting, ATV, boating and fishing and only 1 hour 15 min west of CO Springs.
