Located southwest of Vernal in the high desert area of the Colorado Plateau, this property offers a homestead or ranch ownership opportunity with the outdoor enthusiast at heart. Private land with mature water rights rarely becomes available along this narrow corridor bordering Brush Creek and surrounded by thousands of acres of public land.
This expansive property consists of three contiguous parcels, with the two smaller ones providing road frontage and year-round paved road access along the south side of Brush Creek Road in addition to an eight-and-a-half-acre piece with mature water rights north of the road. Brush Creek runs through this flat northern piece near its southwest border, where a dam and diversion manage the flow. Access to this acreage is via a footbridge over the dam. An easement access agreement allows for a future driveway through the Burns Bench Irrigation Company land and a creek bridge. Part of this land has been tilled and farmed by the adjacent landowner, and the remainder of this eight-and-a-half-acre piece is covered by sagebrush and grasses with lots of signs of wildlife. With priority date water rights and shares, this could be the ideal location to set up your homestead or hobby farm with greenhouses. Several homesteads, ranches, and rural homesites are already in the vicinity. Mature mule deer and turkeys are drawn to the irrigated cropland and water along the Brush Creek corridor, which provides hunting opportunities on the property and the surrounding BLM and state land. Internal dirt roads and trails give access to much of the expansive acreage south of the road and allow for future development or recreation. Explore the unique topography of the high desert sand hills and highlands with panoramic views of the Uinta and Book Cliff Mountains and Blue Mountain to the expansive draws below without ever leaving the property.
Dinosaur National Monument covers over 210,000 acres with a wealth of places to explore the rugged terrain: hiking, biking, trail running, camping, fishing, boating, swimming, rafting on the nearby Green River, and viewing petroglyphs. The Dinosaur Quarry is just minutes away on Quarry Entrance Road. Visitors can see over 1,500 fossilized bones of dinosaurs from the late Jurassic Period, approximately 150 million years old, exposed on the cliff face inside the Quarry Exhibit Hall.
The Green River offers uninterrupted stretches of calm, flat water in some sections and miles of heart-pumping rapids, making it ideal for a leisurely float or whitewater adventure.
Vernal is just 10.5 miles away and offers a variety of restaurants and shopping opportunities, as well as endless outdoor recreation activities to choose from. This property won’t last long. Call Dave and Ann before it’s gone.
