Rocky Mountain National Park
One of the most visited parks in the US, Rocky Mountain National Park received more than 4 million visitors last year.
It could have been the worst-case scenario for Rocky Mountain National Park: a “Land for Sale” sign going up in one of the most popular areas of the Park. But that was exactly the situation the Park would have been confronted with if not for a quick response from Rocky Mountain Conservancy, The Wilderness Land Trust, National Park Trust, and the support of local funders. A 12.5-acre property was about to be listed for sale for only the second time in the last seventy years. With a 2,000 square foot house perched on a rocky overlook and easy motorized access, the demand for this private property within Wild Basin would have been great.
The property is the largest privately-held, developed parcel located in the Wild Basin area of the Park.
