GATEWAY TO THE SAN JUAN NATIONAL FOREST. Did you ever wish you could have the national forest as your backyard? You can make that dream a reality! This mountain property shares more than a mile of common boundary with the San Juan National Forest which encompasses about 1.8 million acres in southwestern Colorado. Enjoy spectacular views from this undeveloped area of Forest Lakes. Tall ponderosa pines provide shade and privacy. Roads have been roughed in but some areas are narrow and very rough or are completely overgrown. Water lines have not been extended to Unit 3 and there is no infrastructure in place or plans to do so. La Plata County may not issue building permits for these lots; buyer to verify.
