SDCR Unit B-3, Block 277 Lot 6234 - 5.6 acres.  $18,000 Cash or Fast pay.  Our financed price requires $8,000 down and 48 monthly payments of $250 for a total purchase price of $20,000.  There is no interest with either option.
 
This is a super parcel in the high country located on Forbes Road near Stella.  It has tremendous views across several ridges and other mountain ranges to the north and east.  The setting is almost like being on a meadow in the Swiss Alps.  The parcel has good stands of aspen and fir trees, but there is a gently sloping meadow area that would be idea for a cabin.  Either a well or a Cistern and water delivery could be used on this property.  Solar panels and a septic system would make it ready for your cabin.

SDCR Unit B-3, Block 278, Lot 6281 -- 9,450’ Elevation --  5.42 Acres.  $15,500 Cash or Fast-Pay( finish paying in 2 years - $6,000 down).   $17,000 with longer term financing. $6,000 down and 55 monthly payments of $200.

This lot is accessible from Memorial Day through December. It is located in an area with beautiful alpine meadows. This area is a favorite among the locals and there are several cabins nearby. 

This parcel has several, nearly flat areas near the road and can be used for camping immediately.  It has a gently sloping, rounded top with a gorgeous view towards Trinchera Peak and the Sangre De Cristo Mountains south of US 160. The elevation is 9,540'. There is a steep  4-WD road going to the top of the property.  To change that to a 10% grade will require a winding drive  about 800' long and estimated to cost $2,000.

There are an estimated 60 cabins above 9500’ and people use solar panels for power, septic systems for waste and buried cistern for water. Propane is used for cooking and heating. Most alpine cabins will also have a wood stove. Propane and water delivery is available, but owners often haul their own water. Water can be hauled with trailer mounted tank (300-500 gallons) and these tanks can be filled at the San Luis Water Department. High Country wells are common in Forbes Park, but to my knowledge, there are none above 9500’ in the SDCR.

Directions to SDCR B.3.6281Please Note: These directions lead to an alpine parcel above 9,500'. This parcel is not accessible by vehicle with muddy or snowy roads.  Portions of Forbes and Malcolm have a very slippery silty clay surface and it is easy to slide into the ditch.  If these conditions are present, please chain up or forget it. From Fort Garland head south on Colorado Hwy 159 for about 10 miles and after passing Mile Marker #22, turn left at Jasper Road.  Take the next right, go 1/4 mile and turn left at Rito Seco Road.  Head east on Rito Seco for about 5 miles, pass some Battle Mountain Gold Mine buildings on your left.  Then turn right on Forbes Road.  Forbes Road is the main road into the high country.  Zero odometer as you turn right on Forbes Road and go up the mountain for about 3.8 miles.  Turn right at wooden sign "Sangre de Cristo Ranches."  Zero odometer again as you turn right.  Take the left fork at the next intersection and after that, take the next left fork again. Then take the next right and continue on Malcolm for 2.3 miles and stop vehicle at  Malcolm  and Jaquez.  Lot 6281 will be on your left.

SDCR Unit E-3, Block 292, Lot 6648, 5.975 Acres located above 10,500'.  Property is at the top of Forbes Road.  Cash price is $19,800.  Finance for $22,000 with $5,500 down and $344 for 48 months.  

. 

This parcel at the top of Forbes Rd. is a pie-shaped piece with a good amount of trees on it - less at the edge of the road for a pull out or camping site.  There is some flat space/meadow type area.  It is accessible only between June 1 and December 15 most years. Our newest photos were taken last summer, showiing the many tall trees and lots of areas that are flat or can be made into a driveway/campsite with ease.  Clicking on the Youtube video shows all of our photos.   Moose Road goes off to the side and above this one.  Like all of our properties, the title is clear, no unpaid taxes or liens, we purchased from an individual and we don't allow more than just occasional camping until it is paid in full.

F-3 - 2 parcels adjacent - nearly 17 acres total.  $25,000 Cash.  Financing may be available with a large down payment.  
 
This listing is for two parcels in the extra-special Alpine area that are adjoining. See the map for how they are laid out.  There is plenty of frontage on Slegers and also some access from the lowest elevation which is along Battenburg.  The terrain is mostly  heavy aspen but some tall pine trees.  In early May, the aspens were still leafing out.
