The South Valley stretches south of Steamboat Springs and encompasses Highway 131’s surrounding areas. Bountiful and picturesque, the area boasts high-end developments with low-density living. A portion of these developments are Land Preservation Sub-Divisions, which offer large acreage but concentrate the housing to a specific zone in order to leave superior open space for wildlife preserve and aesthetic appeal. The area has two golf courses; Catamount (private), and Haymaker (public). Many of the ranches in this Valley are under conservation easement and are protected from any future development. Overall, the South Valley offers large lots, expansive common areas and panoramic views of the ski mountain and the meanders of the Yampa River.
The South Routt area of the Yampa Valley encompasses Oak Creek, Phippsburg, Yampa, Toponas and rural properties between. This area begins roughly 25 miles from Steamboat Springs as you head south on Highway 131. These smaller communities have a history and tradition of mining and railroading. National Forest surrounds many of these towns, which include everything from older single-family homes to large ranches and small 35-acre parcel subdivisions. The Flat Tops Wilderness area is easily accessible from the South Routt area, and hunting, fishing, camping, and river rafting are popular with locals and visitors alike.
