It's hard to believe a place like this exists so close to town! You'll find yourself in a private sanctuary alongside a year-round creek with cascading waterfalls, stunning rock formations, and hundreds of aspen trees. Yet, you're still less than 20 min from downtown Colorado Springs.

WOW is the reaction to this unobstructed Pikes Peak view lot located in upper Crystal Park. This is one of the last undeveloped lots with a view even close to this... The gentle driveway has been improved and ready for a well to be drilled. As well, some of the tree mitigation has been completed. The other views from this lot include Cameron Cone and many of the foothills below Pikes Peak.
