Leslie Loop Lot 531 is a 1.345 acre property that deserves the chance to thrive again. The right owner can use it as their "land canvas" creating the perfect private vacation destination or residential paradise. Located in the amazing community of Forbes Park which offers a plethora of hiking trails, backpacking, biking or meditation. Smith Reservoir is just 24 miles east and is great for a day of fishing, camping or scenic drives. Head 45 miles north and you will find the highly sought after Great Sand Dunes National Park offering hiking, camping & sledding in a diverse park with forests, lakes & North America’s tallest dunes. Not to be missed is the convenient drive to Fort Garland, a small town that provides needed necessities and additional dining opportunities. The unfortunate Spring Creek fire did affect the area, and many of the trees that once shaded the beautiful trails of Forbes Park have been burned. However it is now time to look toward the future and regrowth of this area. The trees will grow back, plants will sprout, and shades of green will continue to spread throughout the park. Now is the time to snag this property as cheap as you will ever find them!
