Property Description

Perched high above in the coveted Bear Creek at South Fork Ranches is Lot 95, a premier 5.49-acre property with dreamy, commanding mountain views of the San Luis Valley. With views out your front yard, your backyard is the national forest. Yes, this exquisite property borders the Rio Grande National Forest! Here you have access to thousands of acres just steps away. Besides its extraordinary location and magnificent views, another unique feature to this property is the owners made improvements by installing a covert at the entrance to the property and installed a stoned paved driveway. This driveway leads up to a flat, open area, free of trees, with views galore, making it a perfect location to build your dream home.


The subdivision of Bear Creek at South Fork Ranches is a gated community with paved roads throughout, year-round access, and an established HOA. There is private access to a common area along the Rio Grande River available to the Bear Creek owners. Residents can also enjoy the recreational trail within the community that runs along with Bear Creek waterway.


Located just a few miles east of South Fork at the intersections of Hwy's 160 and 149, there is an abundance of summer and winter outdoor activities to explore in this southwest Colorado town. For instance, just 2 miles away from the front gate is the Rio Grande Club & Resort, an 18-hole championship golf course. The famous Rio Grande River runs right through South Fork, so try your luck at the hard fighting trout on a float trip down these Gold Medal waters. For some whitewater action, spend the day rafting the headwaters of the Rio Grande with some relaxing lazy stretches as well as some class II and III rapids in the late spring, early summer months. There are 100 miles of OHV trail for ATV's, mountain biking, or just taking long hikes among the wildflowers. For the winter enthusiast, the affordable, family-owned Wolf Creek Ski Resort is just 17 miles away, offering some of the best powder skiing in Colorado.


Located in GMU 79 and bordering units 76 and 80, it's a hunter's paradise with nearly a million acres of surrounding national forest to explore for that large trophy elk, deer or bighorn sheep.


South Fork is located in southwest Colorado at the intersection of Hwy 160 and 149. The town offers all your amenities from grocery stores, restaurants, shops, a nearby hospital, and a golf course. South Fork is 4 1/2 hours to both Denver and Albuquerque.

With the small-town feel of South Fork, a plentitude of outdoor recreation, and improved property bordering national forest with outstanding views, this is your perfect place to call home!
