Experience owning a unique backcountry hunting and recreation ground in the middle of San Isabel National Forest! This 51.63-acre lot is an old mining claim. Accessed via the Echo Canyon Trail 1479 - this remote property is only accessible on foot, sitting 2.2 miles into the high country of Lake County, Colorado. Just below the property, you’re greeted by an old mining cabin leading into the pine groves and many natural benches. It looks out over a breathtaking view of 14,334’ foot La Plata Peak to the South with the sound of natural water below. Starting at 11,840’ - the property climbs to over 12,680’ feet.
Running along Echo Creek, the Echo Canyon trail meanders through the valley, heading up into the back bowl below Casco Peak - sitting at 13911’ feet above sea level. This seldomly traveled valley offers the true peace and serenity of the high alpine. Situated on a South West facing hillside, the property is carved up by game trails frequented by elk, mule deer, mountain lions, and bears. Multiple drainages offer natural funnels, pinch points with access to fresh water, and vantage points favorable for big game hunting. Located in Game Management Unit 48 - there are several options for good draw odds on elk applications, and it is an area that is highly sought after for high-country mule deer. With only 10% of this entire unit being private land, this is a unique opportunity to get your hands on a great piece of the San Isabel National Forest.
