About this property

Perfect Hunting / Hiking / Camping / RV land overlooking Paradise Basin. Located near the prestigious Paradise Basin area off of Ophir Pass Road in San Juan County, Colorado are the Compass and Gem patented Mining Claims (meaning that you own minerals and the surface land). These vacant land parcels are perfect for hunting, hiking, camping, or RV pad site to escape the Texas or Arizona heat. The towering 13000 ft peaks of V5, South Lookout, and North Lookout surround your little slice of paradise. This 30 acre property is composed of 3 parcels (Compass, Compass No. 2, and the Gem) and sits in close proximity to Paradise Lake (1 mile), Crystal Lake (1.5 miles), and Columbine Lake (2 miles). You're less than 0.5 miles away from the world renown Opus Hut Lodge! This is mainly a summer-fall property as there is no winter maintenance on CR8 and avalanche risk in this area can be very high under certain winter conditions. There are no utilities on site but there are several creeks in through the property. Some property is south facing so solar is a great option. The middle fork of Mineral Creek is year around and flows throw the parcels but it would need to be treated and filtered for potable water use. The Compass No. 2 parcel is mostly south facing so solar and wind would be your best options for power generation. San Juan County is zoned so you need County permission for any type of improvement or building. The property elevation ranges from 10,500 - 11,000 feet and would be ideal for hunting base camp, RV pad, seasonal yurt, or private camping spot. One can be in Silverton in about 25 minutes via HWY 550 and CR 8 or into Telluride in about an hour. The Silverton access is 2wd whereas the Telluride access is SUV/4wd. If you're looking for a scenic parcel of land in a desirable hunting / hiking location with amazing mountain views then you've found the right place!
