199.81 Acres at the Base of Black Mesa

An Outdoorsman’s Paradise


A hunters paradise! This is your opportunity to own 200 rugged acres at the end of a private road at the base of Black Mesa. It’s just you and the wildlife back here! The property is located within Game Management Unit 50 which is home to elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep, and antelope – there are game tracks all over! This acreage has a very remote and wild feel to it, yet it is only 20 minutes from the center of town for all your services and supplies. There are several elevated flat areas that would be ideal locations for building a residence or hunting cabin. The views of the mountains and colors of the surrounding landscape are amazing. The southern boundary is fenced. Two arroyos bring seasonal water runoff through the property.

This property is zoned agricultural / residential. Wells for the neighboring properties range from 100-300 feet with water hit above these depths. This property has many potential uses such as a full-time residence, hunting camp, weekend getaway, retirement property, seasonal cabin, ATV and dirtbike riding, camping, or simply hold as an asset or inflation hedge. At under $1,000/acre, this is an insane deal. Don’t let it pass you by!
