La Garita, CO 81132


Huge Price Reduction!!!! The story began 43 years ago, back in 73. A U.S. Air Force officer, just out of the Vietnam War, found Poso Creek Ranch, comprising +/-160 acre inholding within the Rio Grande National Forest, tucked away, about a mile behind Poso Mountain. He couldnt afford the property by himself, so he called on a few fellow officers and friends to share in his vision and join in the purchase. To secure a place for their families, surrounded by millions of acres of forest, Poso Creek Ranch ultimately came to be owned by 14 shareholders. They camped in the early years, then pooled their resources and a custom cabin was finished in 1997, powered by solar with backup generator and propane. Thus the legacy of Poso Creek Ranch was created. Over 40 years the partners families grew, with children and then grandchildren coming along. What a story has been told. The partners can tell you where, over the years, more than a hundred elk have been harvested on and around the ranch, many from the cabin porch. This son took his first bull here. A grandson took his first there. On an average, the partners have hosted 12-18 fellow member elk hunters a year, with deer, bear, and small game a secondary focus. Summer trips have provided months of family outings, fishing nearby Carnero Creek, hiking, four-wheeling and atving miles of adjacent national forest trails too, too many stories to share. Life happens, generations pass, and for the very first time in over 40 years, this 160 acre National Inholding is being offered. Perhaps its your time? The Ranch Located in the very heart of the Rio Grande National Forest, +/-20 minutes west of highway 285, just above some excellent public trout water and about a mile up a four-wheel drive national forest road, youll find paradise. The +/- 160 acre Ranch/Cabin is nestled at +/-9000 feet. The property is completely perimeter fenced/gated. The Ranch has a spring fed meadow that extends down through the valley. The La Garita Mountains frame the sunsets to the west, with Storm King Mountain to the north. Summers are some of the nicest in the country. Stands of aspens and fir are in every direction, with 360 degree views. Instead of power utility bills, you have+/- 320 days of sunshine fueling your cabin lights and propane fueling your water heater. A spring fed triple cistern water system pumps water to a storage tank and pressurized water into the cabin. The property tax bill was +/- $900 for 2016. The Cabin Excellent wind
