With ease of access provided by Highways 24 and 285, and close proximity to Buena Vista and the greater Arkansas River valley, this is one of the better family camping retreats or residential build sites available. Denver and Colorado Springs are equally located approximately one and one-half hours to the east.
Positioned just to the south of Trout Creek Pass, between the towns of Hartsel and Buena Vista, the two parcels total for 14.63 contiguous acres. The sites straddle the Park and Chaffee County line with the 7.97-acre parcel located in the Ranch of the Rockies and 6.66-acre parcel in the Trout Creek Meadows subdivisions. The elevated positioning off-of the summit of Trout Creek Pass affords superb views of the surrounding mountains (East and West Buffalo Peaks, Mosquito Range) and South Park. Antero, Eleven Mile and Spinney Reservoirs are located within a 15 to 30-minute drive to the east. Buena Vista and the Arkansas River are within a 15-minute drive to the west. San Isabel and Pike National Forest lands are also nearby and offer endless recreational opportunities.
The current owner has already installed a domestic well, septic system (designed for three-bedroom home) and extended electrical service to a 220-volt pedestal for easy camper plug in. As combined, the parcels contain a good mixture of aspen and pine forest and open meadow. Horses are allowed per covenants and well regulations. Price is inclusive of a fifth-wheel camper and a storage shed. Parcels are to be acquired together. The stated tax amount is the total of both parcels.
