9 acres, gunnison county
In January 2013, Colorado Open Lands purchased this spectacular property in Crested Butte. It is a part of a natural corridor of open lands on the south slope of Snodgrass Mountain, and is strategically wedged between national forest lands and conserved private land. With this purchase, Colorado Open Lands has protected this unique property from proposed development that threatened to break the parcel into five home sites.
A popular hiking and mountain biking trail weaves through the Hollow, and provides stunning views of the West Elk Wilderness, high mountain meadows, rich aspen forest, and natural wetlands.
