Great Park County Location
Where can you find large homes on lots from five to more than ten acres with majestic views of the Mosquito Ranch, and 1/2 hour from a world-class ski resort like Breckenridge for under a million dollars? Glacier Ridge. On the south side of Hoosier Pass, in Park County, architecture tends toward tall ships with prows of huge glass windows to take in the views. Lots of natural wood beams and high ceilings mimic the countryside and natural is the way they do utilities. Large lots and Park County soil are perfect for water wells and septic systems. A nice big home with a garage makes high country living in deep snow conditions hardly an inconvenience.

Fishing, Hiking and Stellar Views
East of Glacier Ridge you'll find the Platte River and good fishing. Jeep roads link up from this neighborhood and the adjoining Platte River Ranch with roads from Fairplay. The landscapes here are less tree covered than adjacent Summit County and you'll be able to see Mount Silverheels as you explore these backcountry roads. skiing and hiking veer off from the main jeep roads. Montgomery Reservoir is just north of this valley, and beautiful but cold year round.
