Undeveloped land that presents multiple options.LandAn excellent location of undeveloped property in the San Luis Valley with great views of the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains! Approximately seven miles north of Moffat right on Colorado Hwy 17 (west side) at the intersection of County Road AA (southeast corner of property) and Mile Marker 113 (northeast corner of property). Together, these two parcels contain 325 acres, more or less, and are enclosed by barbed wire fencing with access gates. Historic use appears to have been used for grazing of livestock which it appears could be used as such with some needed fence repair and upgrades. Additionally, a viable water source would have to be researched and determined if feasible for this property when considering to use as pasture for cattle. Areas of interest nearby include the Grand Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, the Colorado Gators Reptile Park (between Hooper and Mosca) and the Valley View Hot Springs to name a few. Monarch Mountain is about one hour to the northwest and Wolf Creek is approximately one hour and 30 minutes to the southwest. Larger communities such as Salida, Monte Vista and Alamosa are all within a one hour drive. ImprovementsN/A RecreationCamping, horse back riding, hunting, target shooting, ATV’s and off-roading 4×4 are a few of the activities that can be enjoyed on this property. AgricultureNo agriculture activities at this time. Possible use for grazing cattle depending on available water source or the transport of water to the location.

HistoryFirst pinpointed as an excellent railroad town, turn-of-the-century Moffat was considered the queen city of its valley and was home to more than 2,500 residents. Passenger trains connecting the towns of Salida and Alamosa ran daily through Moffat. Reacting to changing times, the town also functioned as a shipping point, major loading center for livestock and a meeting place for hay contactors. When the railroad ceased operations here in 1954, the town’s heyday came to a close. Today Moffat exists primarily as a ranching community, but many of its original buildings such as the old hotel, mercantile, church and town hall are still intact. In addition to old buildings, a thrift store, deli and trading post are worth exploring. LocationProperty is located approximately seven miles north of the town of Moffat along Colorado Highway 17 (east boundary) and County Road AA (south boundary). The communities of Salida, Monte Vista and Alamosa are all within a one hour or less drive.
