Forested, family-friendly "The 97"

View of Baldy Mountainf from the 97, Blue River, ColoradoSouth of Goose Pasture Tarn, a little higher up the Blue River is the subdivision called the 97, made up of about 40 lots that are each about one-half acre. Just south of these are the 9 lots called 97 South, which are each an acre in size. Just a couple miles from downtown Breckenridge, everything in the 97 will be convenient to town, but will have a more rural character. All the homes and lots are on the west side of Highway 9, as is the Blue River. The river meanders through the neighborhood and its open meadows let sunlight into this warm single-family neighborhood. Surrounding it are the dense spruce and pine forests on the flanks of the Tenmile Range.

Character of the 97

Many locals live year-round in the 97 because it has everything important to mountain dwellers: sunlight, privacy and an easy to travel road. With winter often staying around through May, homeowners in the 97 will get their fix of Colorado sunshine even if snow covers the nearby forest. Never a need to go into town to find a hiking, biking or ski trail, there are plenty of trailheads on the south side of town where you'll find the 97.
