Property Description

Classic Colorado, the Lake Creek Valley is rich with wild beauty and local lore. Nestled within the heart of this pastoral land is Polar Star Road with rare acreage to behold. Head south up this valley and explore deep into the White River National Forest and Holy Cross Wilderness. Head north, and you're just a few minutes away from the bustling town of Edwards where shopping, dining and entertainment options abound. Outdoor aficionados will truly appreciate this location with its proximity to year-round recreation and rustic adventure. Skiing and riding at Arrowhead with village-to-village access to Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch is just 15 minutes away, while Vail Mountain is merely another 10 minutes beyond that. The central Vail Valley locale means easy access to the many golf courses nearby. Or, enjoy hiking, biking, snowshoeing and foraging on the robust public trail system that winds quietly through the majestic forests surrounding the property. The breathtaking landscape of this secluded, pristine area sets at the edge of the Sawatch Range keeping watch over the valley. Approximately 60 percent of the land in this coveted area is dedicated to open space with a vibrant history dating back to the Ute tribes that hunted, fished and foraged throughout the meadows and mountainsides. All of which carries on today as the land continues to be bountiful resource. In the mid-1800s, this area entertained miners seeking to fulfill their dreams and, by the mid-1900s, local ranchers' sheep and cattle roamed, grazing the lush meadows. Today, this sought after area is home to a select few ranches, horse properties, and idyllic residential enclaves of luxurious single family estates. However, possibly the most glorious attribute is how this land allows the third largest elk herd in the region, along with mule deer, foxes, beavers, eagles and dozens of other animals to live in harmony with those lucky enough to call this paradise home. polarstarvail.com/?mls
