Property Description

This lot and the adjacent lot at 7546 Firewater Trl have great historic value as they are the site of ancient food preparation milling stones (morteros). There are several on these two properties. The lots can be purchased separately or together. Beautiful views of Granite Mountain and the entire valley below the lots. Building would require drilling a well and installing a septic system. Dark Skies for viewing the meteor showers that are clearly visible when it's not cloudy. Very close to Blair Valley and is surrounded by the Anza Borrego Desert State Park. The Pacific Crest Trail goes though this area as well. Shelter Valley is a unique small community on the west side of Anza Borrego State Park in San Diego Co. It's about a 1.5 hour drive from San Diego, 15 miles from Julian. It's a high desert retreat from the city closer and cooler than Borrego Springs. Shelter Valley is surrounded by Anza Borrego State Park so no further growth is possible. It can also be reached coming from the San Bernardino area off Hwy 15 through Warner Springs, up from Ocotillo Wells on Hwy 8 or through Cuyamaca State Park or up from Ramona. It is a high desert environment though in centuries past was more habitable as shown by Indian relics found in the area. The ecology is dominated by cactus and open chaparral. Anza Borrego wildflowers in the spring are sensational. The old Butterfield Stage Coach route passed through Shelter Valley on the leg between Yuma and San Bernardino. John Butterfield Co. ran the overland trail from St. Louis, Missouri to San Francisco from 1857 to 1861. Afterwards local stage companies and the Wells Fargo Co used the old trail. At Scissors Crossing the S-2 Hwy doglegs around San Felipe Creek near where the adobe building that once was the San Felipe Station stood. Only a historical monument now marks this spot. The San Felipe Station was between the Vallecito Station 18 mile 'SE' and the Warner Ranch Station 16miles 'NW'. There are a few lost treasure stories associated with this route.
