Approximately 8,200 acres in the southern part of Highlands Ranch have been designated as Backcountry Wilderness Area (Open Space Conservation Area). This area is dedicated to the preservation of open space, wildlife habitat enhancement, outdoor recreation and other permitted uses. Of that, 467 acres have been set aside for exclusive, private use for BackCountry residents.
When you visit Colorado’s premier gated community, you’ll see why BackCountry is -- Wild at Heart – and why it was recently awarded Community of the Year by the Homebuilders Association of Metro Denver. Featuring a variety of homes, styles and price ranges, BackCountry offers homes from the $300s to custom homes from $1.2 million.
