SOLD! Two 40-acre parcels adjoining BLM lands near Granby, Colorado Two 40-acre parcels are close to 2,000 acres of BLM lands northwest of Granby, Colorado. One parcel has a spring and water source, and they provide exclusive access to a 2,000-acre BLM permit. The two parcels are available for $265,000 (for both parcels, total of 80 acres), and can include the BLM permit and that portion of the outfitting business. These parcels would make an excellent cabin site and a place to bunk hunters and pasture horses, while offering out-the-back-door hunting for trophy bulls and mule deer bucks. The BLM permit and that aspect of the business will not be sold separately from the 80 acres, because ownership of the acreage guarantees deeded access to the BLM acreage. This permit dates from May 15 to December 5 each year. It is a recreational permit, where an outfitter can offer horseback rides, hiking, photography, and excellent elk and deer hunting, particularly in the later 3rd and 4th rifle seasons. Seasonal access on mountain parcel, accessed through private gate The access to this parcel is via US 40 straight west of Granby, past Windy Gap Reservoir. Just past Smith Creek, there is a road that crosses the Colorado River to the south, where there is a locked gate. The road is a two-track seasonal road, not well improved but passable. County Road 578 heads south towards the peak of Mt. Chauncey, which overlooks Granby to the east. The two parcels are well up the mountain, probably close to 2 miles from the gate at the bottom, and not far at all from the peak of Mt. Chauncey overlooking Granby. This is an excellent place to build a getaway cabin, and the seller is willing to convey or aid in the transfer of a BLM special use outfitting permit to conduct hunts, horseback rides, and recreational activities on over 2,000 acres of adjoining BLM lands.
