This is not your average Wyoming flatlands property. This is your opportunity to own 160 acres with a 300′ ridgeline along the eastern side of the property. 360-degree views as far as the eyes can see can be yours, including the majestic Ferris Mountains to the north. The majestic colors of the many geological formations on and around the property are a sight to see. Want a little extra incentive to satisfy your inner explorer? Adjacent to this lot on the west and south sides are over 1,000 acres of public recreational land maintained by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Additionally, one-half mile away is well over 1 million contiguous acres of BLM land spanning over a hundred miles of Wyoming wilderness. The possibilities are endless – don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
There are flat dirt paths along both the western and eastern edge of the property. The topography is relatively level on much of the west side with a gentle slope up to the ridgeline followed by a steep drop to the valley floor on the east side. Hang out in the valley during the day, then head up to the top to watch the sunset or stargaze. April through October has delightful weather and the warmer summer months really bring out the green in the land. Yet at over 6,500 feet the summers typically stay quite mild with a cool breeze hitting your skin.
Some potential uses would be a hunting camp, seasonal cabin, grazing land for horses and cattle, pole barn, RV and camping spot, ATV riding, a bugout spot, or simply to hold long term as an asset or inflation hedge.
