Remote Colorado Backcountry Real Estate

Are you shopping for the most spectacular off-the-grid, remote backcountry property that Colorado has to offer? Does the thought of mountain biking, hiking or skiing out of your own solar-powered cabin or yurt sound like heaven? Would you like to own a mountain sanctuary that is surrounded by a sea of wilderness and national forest? Then look no further.

High in the rugged San Juan Mountains near Creede, Colorado lies an exclusive group of remote backcountry properties that will take your breath away. Each of these off-the-grid, patented mining claims border national forest lands and boast spectacular mountain views, good access and extreme privacy. Backpacking, hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing and fishing are literally right out your door. This is the home of the Rocky Mt. elk, mule deer, black bear and big horn sheep.

Off-The-Grid Living at its Finest!

Whether you prefer the efficient simplicity of a yurt (an incredibly comfortable, easily assembled structure designed over 1,000 years ago, now built with modern materials or fancy the comforts of your custom hideaway dream cabin, this is wilderness living at its finest. And when you want to slip back into civilization for a bit of socializing, a four-mile, 15 minute drive will deliver you to the charming high-country hamlet of Creede, the only town in 840 square-mile Mineral County Colorado. Here you will find the nationally acclaimed Creede Repertory Theatre, numerous art galleries, restaurants, shops and amenities all located in a laid-back mountain setting ( If downhill skiing is your preference, a 45-minute drive will put you in the parking lot of Wolf Creek Ski Area, where they typically receive more snow each year than any other ski area in Colorado.

As Remote As It Gets in the Lower 48

Mineral County Colorado boasts over 95% national forest or wilderness lands. Each of these backcountry properties has access to hundreds of thousands of acres of public lands. And the La Garita Wilderness area is less than five miles away. Meaning "The Lookout" in Spanish, the La Garita is aptly named, as the views from its many near-14,000' peaks will attest to. One of the state's original five wilderness areas, the La Garita is one of the most pristine and untraveled in the country and includes the unusual Wheeler Geologic Area with its ghostly, eroded volcanic ash flows.

For many years Colorado mountain real estate has proven to be an excellent investment. One of the chief benefits of owning property is the ability to enjoy using it while it works for you.
