The only thing behind this property is a large, lovely pond and a horse field (off to the left). Google maps shows how beautiful the area is - if you get a chance, have a look at the street and satellite views. The road includes the trailhead for an easy climb up the Butte itself and the neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. There is a convenience store, liquor store, auto shop, gas station, post office, Palmer Raceway, Reindeer Farm and access to the Knik River and Jim Creek (popular fishing and recreation areas) within 5 miles. Not to mention a short, 10 minute drive to Palmer or 20 minutes to Wasilla, if there is need. The area has paved cycling trails and open access (straight off the road) to the Matanuska River as well as the Knik River.
