Property: Knoll - Willows
Priority Area: Estes Valley
Size: 19.6 Acres
In the heart of Estes Park is a knoll. At one time it was slated to become an outlet mall. The citizens of Estes Park have worked to protect this area as an important wildlife habitat and historic viewshed. It is bounded on the east and north sides by Hwy 34, on the west by MacGregor Avenue, and on the south by municipal parking lots and private commercial buildings. It provides visitors with easy access and incredible views.
This property was purchased to protect its open space viewshed values and includes passive recreational uses. This property is owned by the Town of Estes Park and the conservation easement is monitored by the Estes Valley Land Trust.
