MALT Announces the Conservation of 71 Acres near Bailey, CO

Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT) has closed on a Conservation Easement on a beautiful 71 acre property near Bailey. The property has breathtaking mountain and river views and includes a half-mile of river frontage on the North Fork of the South Platte River. This Conservation Easement will ensure that the property’s wildlife habitat and scenic vistas will be conserved forever. The property was formerly owned by the Denver Wheel Club, a bicycling club, in the early 1900s. The club used the property as a retreat and held bike races in the meadow near the river. In the mid-1900s, the property was used as a church summer camp. The current owners have owned the property since 1994. MALT has been working with these owners for several years and is grateful for their determination to see this through to completion.
