Towering cottonwood trees hug the shoreline of the creek. Enjoy the comforting sound of babbling waters, rustling leaves and the canopy of shade during the heat of the summer months.  Cottage Rock, an immense colorful red and white rock butte, watches over the meadow and the hunting/grazing land.  Imagine your future home with this dramatic backdrop and a peaceful, gentle meadow in your front yard. Electric & phone are along the paved county road, aka Gold Belt National Back Country Byway, which provides access to the Ranch and is the east boundary line.
