SDCR Unit E-3, Block 292, Lot 6649 -- 11,400’ Elevation --  5.5 Acres.  $23,400 Cash or Fast-Pay ($11,400 down and balance paid within 18 months) -- or $26,000 Financed, with $9,800 down and 54 monthly payments of $300.

This lot is accessible from approximately Memorial Day through December. It is located in an area with beautiful alpine meadows and Bristle Cone Pine stands. This area is a favorite for its commanding views from what feels like the "Top of the World."


There is about 100' near the road, with a less-than-10% slope, that could be used for camping or building.  The lot is approximately 800' in length from the road (elevation 11,400') to the southern corner (elevation 11,260').  In late Auguest and early September, several types of mushrooms grow beneath the trees and in the meadows in this area.

There is a very nice cabin located across Forbes and east of Moose, but for the most part this area is used for camping and recreating during the warmer months.

Directions to SDCR E3.6649:  Please Note: These directions lead to an alpine parcel above 10,000'. This parcel is not accessible by vehicle with muddy or snowy roads.  Portions of Forbes 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 8.8 miles, just past Moose Road on your right.  Lot begins on left side of Forbes Road and runs about 580 feet along the road to the northwest corner.  See plat and gps maps below.
