Young Property

This 80-acre property sits atop Sharptail Ridge. It is potential habitat for the sharp-tail grouse, which has limited range in Colorado. The proximity of other undeveloped lands makes this a critical wildlife movement corridor. There is no public access to the Young property; however it is visible from the Sharptail Ridge Trailhead.
