40 Mountainous Acres – Durango, CO

Amazing views!


This is not your average flatlands property. This is your opportunity to own 40 rugged acres at the end of La Posta Canyon Road surrounded by the mountains on 3 sides. The views and surrounding landscapes are incredible. Enjoy the majestic colors and crisp unspoiled air of the mountains. Even better – the property borders approximately 75,000 acres of protected reservation land. Only 35 minutes to Durango and Lake Nighthorse!

This would make an excellent rural residence for full time use or weekend getaway to take the family and friends. Other uses could be a base camp for hunting or other outdoor recreation, a horse ranch, short-term camping location, a bugout spot, or simply to hold as a long-term asset or inflation hedge.
