ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
Are you looking for a little elbow room? This 439 acre property could be utilized as a homesite, a hunting property or just a little slice of Colorado to call your own. Moffat County is quickly becoming the recreational hub for northwest Colorado with all of the amenities nearby but without the price tag you might expect in a resort area. Hiking, hunting, rafting, biking ... Moffat County has that covered!
You'll find fabulous hiking right out your back door. If you're looking for more challenging trails Brown's Park, Irish Canyon and Cedar Mountain are all located within two hours - perfect locations for a day trip!. Looking for National Park access? Dinosaur National Park is a hop skip and jump away while 80,000 thousand acres of national forest with public access is under 30 miles away. Steamboat Springs (SBS) has absolutely endless trials from easy to extreme all within an hour from SBS. Some of the well known trails are Fish Creek (right in SBS) Mad Creek (on the way to Clark), Zirkel Circle in the Zirkels, Rabbit Ears and Gilpin Lake (also in the Zirkles). When you finish hiking you can soak your tired muscles at the hot springs in SBS as well as at Strawberry Hot Springs.
If you're looking for rafting opportunities you'll love The Little Yampa Canyon (LYC), also known as Duffy Canyon. LYC is located in Moffat County, just downstream of Craig, Colorado and is home to a 32-mile, family-friendly, flatwater stretch of the Yampa River; a stretch that has been found to hold characteristics suitable for a Wild & Scenic River designation.
This section of river boasts incredible scenery, hidden Native American petroglyphs, frequent wildlife viewing opportunities, and an incredible sense of serenity and solitude that is lost in todays modern, busy world. Unlike the Yampa Canyon which requires a permit from Dinosaur National Monument to float the river, the LYC is managed by the Bureau of Land Management as a Special Recreation Management Area and does not require a permit to float the river.
Until recently, the LYC has been one of the Yampa's most underutilized sections due to its remote nature and lack of proper formalized campsites. The 32-miles of river also discourages day-trippers due to it being to long to float in one day. But, as of May of 2018, things have changed!
This property is within an hour of world class skiing and dining in Steamboat Spring and the Hayden Airport which offers multiple daily flights to Denver - skip the long security lines and parking decisions!
At the end of the day Craig is 20 miles away and offers grocery stores, Murdochs, Walmart, hardware & boutique shopping and a classy wine bar. If you're looking for a meal out there are options from a quiet steak dinner, patio dining, authentic Mexican, a fun food warehouse with multiple dining options and numerous food trucks.
