70 acres with 1/4 mile both sides of the Elk River-just 7 paved miles north of Steamboat. Located along the sought after Elk River and just off of Routt County Road 129, this property is easy to access from town. The acreage north of the river (approximately 13) is completely covered in cottonwoods and pines, providing a private and quiet setting along the banks of the river. The south bank of the river is flanked by a steep hillside loaded with game trails that wind through the thick pine forest. The remaining acreage on the south side of the Elk is a level to rolling aspen covered bench that attracts elk, deer, bear and an occasional moose. The property is within a half mile of the Routt National Forest and an additional 2 miles of public fishing on the Elk River. With no covenants, close proximity to a notable resort town and public land, live water and great privacy--this property checks many of the boxes for quality, recreational acreage.
