  • Scenic Open Space: This scenic property is visible to the public from the Fraser River in the Fraser River Canyon, Amtrak National Rail Passenger Service (Union Pacific railroad), which runs along the Fraser River, and from adjacent BLM and Arapaho National Forest land east of the property.
  • Wildlife Habitat: The Fraser River, one of the first major tributaries of the Colorado River, cuts through this property between the towns of Tabernash and Granby. The property is also both a habitat and migration corridor for many large animals, such as black bear, mountain lion, mule deer, elk, and moose. The property also provides critical mule deer winter range and is habitat for a variety of smaller animals, including bobcat, pine marten, snowshoe hare, pine squirrel, northern pocket gopher, various species of mice and voles, and over 40 avian species, including bald eagles who winter along the Fraser River. The Fraser River is designated a Wild Trout Water by Colorado Parks & Wildlife because it harbors self-sustaining populations of trout, including brook, rainbow, and brown.
