Looking for an area outside Fort Collins that has trees and is within 40 minutes of town, anything come to mind?

Much of the area west of Fort Collins is treed as you get into the mountains. The lower Poudre Canyon, Rist Canyon, Stove Prairie, Masonville, Drake, and Livermore areas would be places to begin looking. Some areas, especially north facing slopes, have more trees and some have fewer. As the pine beetle spreads, some of the areas that now have trees will not in the near future.

A bit more information would be helpful in pointing you in the right direction. Are you looking for vacant land on which to build, vacant land for recreation, a cabin, a primary residence, a vacation home? What part of Fort Collins will you be wanting to access within the 40 minutes? Do you want evergreen or deciduous trees? Big or small property?

Good luck in your search.

Thanks for the reply Mike -
Looking for vacant land to build on as a primary residence, actually two homes is what we are planning on building. Ideally a dividable piece of property 6-10 acres.
Not sure what part of Fort Collins, we have actually never been there before but we are planning a trip and want to make sure that there are areas we are interested in. Not too picky about the trees but if we had to pick it would be evergreens.
