Cordillera Ridgeline

This 167-acre parcel rests on the ridgeline between the Cordillera and Lake Creek neighborhoods and is a highly visible landscape towering over Edwards and the entire Lake Creek Valley. It was conserved through a partnership between Eagle Valley Land Trust, the U.S. Forest Service, and Eagle County Open Space. A permanent conservation easement on the property means that this critical viewshed will be protected forever.

Lake Creek is a pristine slice of Rocky Mountain heritage – a picture postcard for what it means to live in Colorado. It’s the last southern creek valley within our community that hasn’t been developed into a golf course or subdivisions.

The third largest elk herd in the region lives in and migrates through the Lake Creek Valley, with hundreds of animals using the Cordillera Ridgeline property as their stomping grounds. Also of note, a rare and vulnerable flower – Harrington’s Penstemon – can be found on this lovely tract of land. There are very few instances of this flower in Colorado’s Central Rockies, and we have it right here on the Cordillera Ridgeline property.

Our views matter. Our beloved wildlife and wildflowers matter. Eagle Valley Land Trust is proud to have saved these 167 acres for all to enjoy forever.
