Gaze out upon this spectacular 80-acre property in Southern Colorado, and you will immediately see what makes it so special. A wall of vertical Igneous Rock Formations protrudes high along the Southern Boundary of the property, extending out from Silver Mountain. This sturdy granite ridge creates a beautiful natural barrier for privacy and protection against the elements. (Learn more HERE.)
Extreme pressure and hot molten rock shaped these sturdy vertical rock formations thousands of feet underground among layers of sedimentary rock. After many years of erosion, the softer rock broke away, and these igneous formations rose high over the land. Huerfano County is known for these distinctive geologic features, and this property features them beautifully!
Just 1.3 miles West of the property, Property Owners of Majors Ranch have Private Access to 2,000 Acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Land on Silver Mountain for endless exploration. Here you will find vast opportunities for hunting Big Horn Sheep, Elk, Mule Deer, Pronghorn Antelope & more. Check the local BLM office for specific recreation and hunting information.
Electricity Lines & Poles and Underground Telecommunications Lines run along 1/4 mile of Frontage on Bear Springs Road along the Northern Boundary.
Nature & Wildlife
The lower mountain ranges and erosional remnants offer more solitude, wildlife watching and nature experiences than the larger, more crowded Colorado ranges. Nearby mountains include the Spanish Peaks, Silver Mountain, Mount Mestas, Sheep Mountain, Little Sheep Mountain and the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range, home of the Badito Cone.
In Southern Colorado, you’ll also experience a milder climate, perfect for relaxing, exploring or enjoying the views outdoors year-round. And, the property is still just a few hours away from Northern Colorado’s best winter sport locations.
The property displays the region’s diverse flora and fauna, offering both tree-shaded acreage as well as open grasslands. Evergreen junipers, oaks, and various shrubs grow close the ridge. The striking greenery stands out against the rocky terrain.
Watch for wildlife such as Mule Deer, Elk, White Tail Deer, Pronghorn Antelope, Wild Turkey, Coyote, Cottontail Rabbits and Jackrabbits. Black Bears also make appearances on occasion. Hawks and Eagles soar the open blue skies in search of prey while Dusky (Blue) Grouse and Roadrunners hide among the rocks.
About 27 minutes to the North, Pike & San Isabel National Forests allows for endless outdoor activities such as Hiking, Biking, Camping, Fishing, Horseback Riding, OHV Riding and Water Sports.
Just South of the property, Lathrop State Park also offers similar recreational activities, plus Golfing and Small Game & Waterfowl Hunting. Nestled at the base of the Spanish Peaks, you’ll find cool solitude and two lakes: Martin Lake and Horseshoe Lake. These warmer waters provide unique angling opportunities for species such as: Northern Pike, Walleye, Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Perch and Catfish. Interestingly, Horseshoe Lake is home to the more challenging Tiger Muskie – see if you can catch one!
