Top of the World

Top of the World offers rural peace and solitude combined with the convenience of an ideal location in the historic San Luis Valley. Located between the towns of Fort Garland and San Luis, you will be near National Parks and Forests for hiking and biking, sparkling reservoirs for top quality fishing and boating, and herds of deer, elk, and antelope grazing in the fields.
This area offers something for everyone. Whether you choose it for your own private recreational retreat, as a place to build your next home, or just as a way to secure land of your own in the great outdoors, you will find what you're looking for at Top of the World.

Property Boundaries (Lat/Long Coordinates)
Costilla County is ideally located for recreation seekers. Hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking, boating, history. You name it, it's close by in the great outdoors. And never far from stunning, snow-capped mountain peaks.
If you're a skier, the nearby Taos Ski Valley across the border in New Mexico has outstanding ski slopes, as well as white water rafting and historic tours. Great Sand Dunes National Park lies just to the north of the county, offering exhilarating sandboarding and sand sledding (that's snowboarding and sledding on sand - if you haven't tried it, you must.) on the tallest dunes in North America. The park is also a Dark Sky Park, with very little external light pollution, offering some of the best star gazing in Colorado. You'll find peace and beauty that make you feel like a part of outer space - which is worth a lot in today's busy and crowded world.
When it comes to trails and hiking, you could hike a different trail every day of the year and never run out of new options. The county is home to many reservoirs, including the Sanchez and Smith, providing top quality fishing, swimming, boating, and paddle boarding. And we certainly can't forget the famed Rio Grande river, offering not only great fishing, but also canoeing, kayaking, and tubing.
With endless Native American, Mexican, and colonial American history, there is also a lot to see and learn in the San Luis Valley of Costilla County. The historic small town of San Luis is the oldest town in Colorado, and it contains a famous Stations of the Cross in bronze statues, drawing in visitors from far and wide. The town of Fort Garland is home to the fort of the same name, which was the last command of the legendary frontiersman Kit Carson. The list goes on. There's something for everyone in Costilla County - especially those who love the outdoors.
