Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of this private and wooded mountain property in rural Costilla County, Colorado. The land is located inside the gated community of Forbes Park, near Fort Garland, and offers stunning views, fresh air and nature at its prime.  

Forbes Park has approximately 13,000 acres, from which 8,000 acres are private lots and the rest is common land. Tree varieties found inside the community include limber pine, aspen, spruces and firs. Ponderosa pines and bristlecone pines can be seen in the higher elevations. Are you already feeling the delicious smells provided by the trees?   

This property is your one-way ticket into a highly coveted natural sanctuary for the animals. Bountiful wildlife in the area include Elk, Deer, Antelope, Fox and Bobcats. Besides, there are endless nearby outdoor opportunities to raft, canoe, backpack, rock climb, hike, 4WD, snowmobile and cross-country ski. This is the perfect playground for having memorable adventures!

If you are interested in fishing and boating, Home Reservoir, Smith Reservoir and Sanchez Reservoir are close by. In these locations, you can find pike, bass, walleye and trout, among other fish. Besides, you can engage your senses in the natural beauty of the San Luis Lakes State Park, just 47 miles away, and the Rio Grande National Forest, 106 miles away. The awe-inspiring Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is only 43 miles away. You can also hike at nearby Mount Blanca and the surrounding mountains!

Located at about 9,000 feet above sea level, the lot experiences 330 days of sunshine per year. Housing options allowed by the Forbes Park Homeowners Association include traditional houses, cabins and mobile homes. If you like tiny houses, dwellings as small as 600 square feet are permitted. Water in the area is obtained by drilling a well or hauling it through a tank. Sewer is by septic and propane is commonly used for heat. For power, you can call the local electric company Xcel Energy, use solar panels or wind power.

With fewer than three people per acre, this is really a mountain property. But, at the same time, the lot is convenient to shopping and amenities. The property is a 14-mile drive to Fort Garland to restock supplies or grab a refreshment.
