Idarado Legacy. The Final Chapter. The Greatest Claim.
More than 125 years after gold was discovered in the mountains that loom over Telluride and at the same confluence where the icy waters of Ingram and Bridal Veil Falls still rush to form the San Miguel River, this same expanse of prime Telluride territory has once again unearthed precious land. Today, this magnificent and historic canyon has become home to a limited number of modern-day Homesteads, tied to its 125-year heritage, and referred to as Idarado Legacy.

Nowhere else in the Telluride valley can you own a parcel of land so close to town and be surrounded by privacy, vast open space and unspoiled beauty.  Bridal Veil and Ingram Falls, signature landmarks of Telluride, are in your front yard. Unencumbered panoramas of the surrounding pristine high country are yours…forever. Trail systems link you with the town of Telluride and the wilds and grandeur of unending wilderness. At Idarado Legacy, exploration and discovery take on entirely new meanings. 

"Idarado was a big supporter of letting us use equipment to build ski lifts. We built the first rope tow in Telluride in 1956 on what is now Kid's Hill, we called it Grizzly Gulch. Bob Highlander, the Mine Manager, was a big proponent of this, he always encouraged recreation and fun when we were not working."
