Eagles Nest and Three Peaks
A maze of winding streets curve around the golf course called The Ravens Golf Club at Eagles Nest - and are generally known as the neighborhood Eagles Nest -- the same name as the wilderness that lies close by, to the west, and climbs up and over the Gore Range. One section, mostly Filing #4, is known as Three Peaks and is the western most area of the neighborhood backing on national forest - and the least developed to date.
While this is a rural, and private neighborhood of single-family homes on large rolling lots, it has all the conveniences of a modern neighborhood with paved streets, that aren't too steep, and all the utilities available in an urban setting (electricity, natural gas, sewer, water, cable). In 2017, a Verizon cell town will go online within the neighborhood.
The roads are gentle and paved, plowed in the winter, with plenty of pine and aspen trees in its creeks and draws to provide shade on this leeward side of the Blue. From the upper roads of Eagle's Nest one has views to Keystone Ski Resort and Lake Dillon as well as the Williams and Gore ranges.
