PRICE REDUCED! Located within the Challis National Forest at the mouth of Ramshorn Canyon, this private inholding is surrounded by thousands of acres of public land. Several well-established roads crossing BLM and USFS managed land provide year-round motorized vehicle access to the property.
Located in the zone of transition between the lower sagebrush grasslands and the upper juniper woodlands, the terrain varies from rolling hills covered in sagebrush and drought-resistant native grasses to steep rocky mountainsides covered in juniper. This is ideal habitat for many game and nongame species. Based on the tracks and scat I saw while touring the property, elk, deer, bighorn sheep, and the occasional coyote frequent the property. In fact, the day I was there, I saw a large herd of more than 100 elk. The USFS has developed a spring at the upper end of the canyon, which supplies a steady stream of water to several tanks located in the lower end of the canyon. One of these tanks is conveniently located on this property, providing a reliable water source for livestock and local wildlife.
There are several potential building sites on the property, one of which is elevated, providing fantastic views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Power is approximately 3 miles away; however, the property has good southern exposure setting up the possibility for an alternative energy source.
Local attractions include the Big Lost River and Mackay Reservoir, both of which are known for great rainbow trout fishing. This area is also known for its well-established and community-supported ATV/UTV trail network. The nearby towns of Arco and Mackay offer just about everything one would need to live a country lifestyle.
