SDCR Unit B-3, Block 277, Lot 6226 --  6.377 Acres.  $7,200 Cash or Fast-Pay.   $8,000 with financing - $2,000 down and $200 a month for 30 months.

Here's your chance to for ownership in the high country with a less expensive parcel.  We thought it was pretty steep in places, but it was not difficult to find and the roads were good getting in there in late May 2016.  At Ryland, the elevation may be around 10,000 but it drops substantially down to the south.

 

There are an estimated 60 cabins above 9,500’ 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 our knowledge, there are none above 9500’ in the SDCR.

 

Directions:   Please 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, passing 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 4.2 miles to a right turn on Ryland.  Drive 0.6 miles -- lot is on right, with short driveway and parking pad.

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.

SDCR Unit E-3, Block 292, Lot 6648, 5.795 Acres located above 10,500'.  Property is at the top of Forbes Road and parallel to Phillips.  Call for pricing.  

. 

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.  We have posted photos of the parcel next to it that we sold a few years ago but are waiting for detailed photos of this one to share.  It is going to be priced  comparatively to other high altitude parcels that we've sold in the past The photo that is marked for Moose Road, shows this parcel's edge clearly.  Moose Road goes off to the side and above this one.

SDCR Unit P-2, Block 248, Lot 5395 --  7.76 Acres.  $13,500 Cash or Fast-Pay.   $15,000 with financing - $5,500 down and $250 a month for 40 months.


Seclusion, aspen trees, pine trees, wildlife, access to the Greenbelt, and a camping pad and driveway!  This is a large parcel that is sloped about 20'  per 100 feet up the mountain but with the driveway, it is very usable and will be an excellent base for camping, family recreation, a small cabin in the future.  You can hike one or two miles in several directions without crossing private property or a road.  It is a RUGGED parcel at 10,600' elevation, but the proximity of the thousand acres the developers set aside for for recreational land is a huge plus.  Being adjacent to the Greenbelt is something everybody hopes for and of all the parcels we've sold, a low percentage were in this good of position.  There is 400 feet of frontage along Park road and the parcel is 1,100' long. 

 

There are an estimated 60 cabins above 9,500’ 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.
