Enjoy Stunning Views of the Surrounding Mountains from Your Own Private Corner of Scenic Costilla County.
This property has big sky as far as the eye can see, with spectacular natural views in all directions, thanks to its location in the middle of a number of different mountain ranges. Its close proximity to the Rio Grande River means that after an active morning of hiking in the hills, you can spend the afternoon swimming, floating, or just relaxing on the river banks.
You'll also have world class trout fishing nearby, as well as an abundance of big game, wildlife, and even wild horses. There are several great ski resorts close by, as well. It all spells unending recreational opportunities within just a short drive of this slice of paradise. Come out and experience the fresh air and freedom you have been craving.
With panoramic views of rugged mountains and rolling hills, this lot is flat and easy to build on. Make it yours and you can live in harmony with nature - for camping weekends, vacations, or full-time in a retirement home.
You'll be just 8 miles from the beautiful Rio Grande River and 30 miles from the town of Fort Garland, home of the historic fort that was the last command of Kit Carson.

Costilla County is ideally located for recreation seekers. Hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking, boating, history. You name it, it's close by in the great outdoors. And never far from stunning, snow-capped mountain peaks.
If you're a skier, the nearby Taos Ski Valley across the border in New Mexico has outstanding ski slopes, as well as white water rafting and historic tours. Great Sand Dunes National Park lies just to the north of the county, offering exhilarating sandboarding and sand sledding (that's snowboarding and sledding on sand - if you haven't tried it, you must.) on the tallest dunes in North America. The park is also a Dark Sky Park, with very little external light pollution, offering some of the best star gazing in Colorado. You'll find peace and beauty that make you feel like a part of outer space - which is worth a lot in today's busy and crowded world.
When it comes to trails and hiking, you could hike a different trail every day of the year and never run out of new options. The county is home to many reservoirs, including the Sanchez and Smith, providing top quality fishing, swimming, boating, and paddle boarding. And we certainly can't forget the famed Rio Grande river, offering not only great fishing, but also canoeing, kayaking, and tubing.
With endless Native American, Mexican, and colonial American history, there is also a lot to see and learn in the San Luis Valley of Costilla County. The historic small town of San Luis is the oldest town in Colorado, and it contains a famous Stations of the Cross in bronze statues, drawing in visitors from far and wide. The town of Fort Garland is home to the fort of the same name, which was the last command of the legendary frontiersman Kit Carson. The area is now home to farmers and ranchers whose families have been there for generations. Local farms grow such crops as potatoes, wheat, beans, carrots, and lettuce, as well as raising cattle, sheep, and goats. Besides horses, wildlife also includes an abundant supply of deer, elk, antelope, eagles, black bears, and bighorn sheep. The list goes on. There's something for everyone in Costilla County - especially those who love the outdoors.
