Spanish Highlands Ranch LDS
Spanish Highlands mountian ranch subdivision was established in the early 1970's. It is one of the oldest mountain ranch subdivisions in Las Animas County, Colorado. When it was first begun, there were protective covenants and an active POA to enforce them. In the late 1970's the POA disbanded. Though the covenants remain on public record, there is no active POA to enforce them so basically the land is now covenant free. This mountain ranch offers enough inventory and diversity to fulfill almost everyone's needs. There are both large and small mountain acreages. Some roads require 4-wheel access while most do not. Most parcels have ponderosas with cedar and pinion tree coverage. You'll find some nice mountain meadow areas and lots of incredible rock outcroppings throughout the ranch. At an elevation of 6800-7700 feet you'll find a variety of wildlife and terrain. It is close to the State Wildlife and BLM land areas and is one of the best-priced mountain ranch subdivisions in the area. Only minutes from Trinidad, Colorado this is mountain land you'll want to be sure to see.
