ACREAGE AND DESCRIPTION
Hidden Springs Ranch consists of 640 deeded acres and is also adjacent to a large tract of public land for additional recreational uses. This scenic ranch has an incredible landscape with timbered hills, deep ravines, open meadows and a large spring. The location is remote, but yet accessible for an improved private road.
The ranch has historically been run as a cattle ranch with cow/calf pairs. Hidden Springs Ranch is currently being leased during the summer for livestock grazing. However, the current owners and tenant have remained diligent about preserving sufficient cover for wildlife habitat.
Mule deer, elk, antelope, pheasant, upland game birds, and turkey can all be found in the area. Some of the best mule deer hunting can be found right here! In addition, a spring-fed pond provides a home for trout, small mouth bass and waterfowl. Other natural species include bobcats, coyotes, and birds of prey.
WATER RIGHTS AND RESOURCES
The ranch offers a free flowing spring, which has been developed for livestock and wildlife, and also feeds a large pond. In addition, two new wells have been developed, with the main well featuring a new water filtration system.
