This parcel is located in the Horse Creek Properties subdivision–made up of several 40-acre parcels that were subdivided out of a large mountain tract. The good news is that there is no homeowner’s association with a bunch of rules on how to use your property. Neighboring tracts have recreational cabins on them. This parcel consists of 4-40+/- acre parcels. There are no easements through the property for others to access the national forest, and no association assessments. The road to the property is gravel and access is seasonal, but the roads are in good condition. The neighbors have an informal agreement with a local rancher to graze his cattle on all the parcels, and they use the lease money to maintain the roads. Access is through a locked gate, to which all owners have the combination.
Go online and look at topo maps of the Grand Mesa between Cedaredge and Mesa, Colorado. It’s gorgeous!

There are 300 or so lakes within a few hours hike or ride from the property, offering a wide variety of fishing options. Snowmobiling on the Grand Mesa is known as one of the best places in the West to ride, with a network of hundreds of miles of trails. Nordic skiing, horseback riding, hiking—it’s all right there. The Grand Mesa has vast aspen forests on its shoulders, while the top of the mesa has stands of Englemann spruce and sub-alpine fir, mixed with many wide-open meadows. The Mesa also has miles of ATV trails, equestrian trails, hiking trails, and biking trails.
