Galena Claim #1 Schofield Park Mining Claim

Imagine living near a historic mining town from days gone by...If you are looking for something off the beaten path and most interesting, this is it! This 10.33 acre mining claim with a small cabin/shed has everything you need to get back to nature - even includes the mineral rights! Small 10' x 12' shed works great for dry storage and weekend stays is ready when you are for your next adventure! Nice grassy area with southern exposure to pitch a wall tent or tie up your horses. During big snow years, there is even a waterfall nearby! Property is mostly treed with mature evergreens and amazing mountain views! Located just beyond Emerald Lake in Schofield Park, this historic claim originally had a blacksmith building and another cabin. The trailhead to West Maroon Pass where you can hike over to Aspen is nearby creating a fun opportunity for adventure-seekers. Property almost parallels the road to North Pole Basin and is bordered by the Land Conservancy, private property and national forest. All corners have been surveyed & title is clean. Situated in game unit 43, this would make a great location for a hunting camp or a private getaway! From this property, the drive back to paved roads in Mt. Crested Butte is approximately 12 miles away. Note: assessor's map is off so property is closer to the access road. Extreme terrain during the winter months with multiple avalanche zones between property and Crested Butte. Recommended for summer use only Mid-June-first part of November. Schofield was a small town at the top of the main pass from the Gunnison/Crested Butte area over to the Crystal/Marble/Redstone area. There is nothing left of the town. A mill was built in 1881 and at its height it had a hotel, restaurant, post office, store, carpenter, blacksmith, barber and daily mail service. By 1885, the ores played out and the town was no more. Today, the main attraction is Schofield pass (aka Devil's Punchbowl) which is only passable by bicycle, ATV or foot traffic.
