Own your own private canyon hideout in the Colorado mountains. Step back in time to the days of outlaws and gold miners and explore almost 300 acres of hidden canyon land with thickly wooded hillsides, mountain meadows, live water springs and more. The land sits in a scenic and secluded canyon with steep rock walls and outcroppings. It has a nice combination of ponderosa, aspen, pinon, cedar, and gambel oak trees. Binckley Gulch traverses through the property and natural water springs surface in many locations. There are also several seasonal pond areas that will catch and hold water during spring and summer rains. The property has no covenants or HOA, so many uses are possible including camping, hiking, hunting, shooting, ATV use, or horseback riding. There are many ideal spots to build a new home or cabin. The property has excellent access of two county roads and is minutes away from the popular Royal Gorge attractions and fly fishing and river rafting on the Arkansas River. Canon City, CO is only 30 minutes away and Colorado Springs is under 90 minutes to the property.
The property has been substantially improved with a solid 2,400 square foot barn and utility building with a concrete floor foundation. The structure is wired and partially plumbed and includes a modest living area with a kitchen and bathroom area for weekend visits. It also has a convenient workshop area. The building currently has a large propane heater and electric baseboard heat. The building also has two oversized roll up doors for easy drive through and storage of vehicles, tractors, campers, or ATV’s. Very productive well, septic system, and electric service are already in place.
The land is located in Game Management Unit 581 and adjoins BLM lands on the southwest corner with thousands of BLM acres in the immediate area. There is abundant game sign and trails on the property especially moving through the Binckley Gulch drainage. Elk, mule deer, bear and turkey are seen regularly in and around the property. The ranch offers protective areas and water resources to attract and hold big game. Because of its size, the property qualifies for registration in the Landowner Preference Program (LPP) allowing for the potential to obtain additional game tags each year. Equestrians would love this property as there is old jeep trail running through most of the property offering a scenic area for riding horses.
