This 160-acre parcel is adjoined on two sides by over 5,600 contiguous acres of Comanche National Grasslands just south of US Highway 350 near Timpas, Colorado. From the parcel, La Junta is located less than a 30-mile drive and provides all primary services. The Comanche National Grasslands spans over 440,000-acres in southeast Colorado and there are numerous nearby points of access. The parcel contains a good mixture of grass meadows, juniper and cedar forest and rock-lined drainages just above Sheep Canyon. A branch of the historic Santa Fe Trail is marked by flag stone posts through a portion of the parcel. There are two nearby water sources located on public lands that serve to attract wildlife with an owner maintaining the ability to place a domestic well on individual tracts of 35-acres or more, if desired. Pronghorn, Mule Deer and Elk are common inhabitants and move through the open prairie and adjacent canyon lands. This tract, and a sizable portion of the Comanche National Grasslands, are contained within Colorado Game Management Unit 135, a Plains Elk Unit. Plains Elk Units allow unlimited over-the-counter Elk tags from September 1 through January 31 (bull or cow and weapon of choice).This is the perfect basecamp to explore the hundreds of thousands of acres of grasslands that have been set aside to commemorate the vastness of the American West. Parcels priced below $800 per acre and offering similar recreational opportunities are rare. Call Brent Hedrick for more information.
