This property has been owned by the same family for over 100 years. Dating back to the settlement of the Surface Creek Valley, the original wagon trail heading north from Cedaredge crosses the property. Mostly grown over, signs of the wagon trail are still discernible and there are a couple of areas known to be resting places for the U.S. Cavalry—as evidenced by artifacts found on the property and dated tree carvings. Historically, this property has been used as a summer pasture for cattle and full perimeter fencing, cross fencing, corrals, loading chute, cattle guards and two running creeks make this an ideal location for that purpose. A short easy drive south from Highway 65 makes pulling your camper to the property very doable. There are several nice building sites and springs originating on the property and electricity is located nearby with an easement in place to extend it to the property.
