This scenic 192± acre river bottom ranch with panoramic views of Idaho’s highest peaks is among the Lost River Valley's premier trout fishing and wildlife properties. Over a half-mile of the Big Lost River flows through the ranch with numerous riffles, runs, and deep holes that are home to large rainbow trout exceeding 20 inches. Additional water resources on the property include Kid Creek, the Burnett irrigation canal, and various sloughs, side channels, and wetland areas. A lush cottonwood forest offers secluded building sites and provides an undisturbed haven for moose, whitetail deer, mule deer, wild turkeys, raptors, and waterfowl. Approximately 60 acres are productive sprinkler-irrigated cropland with an active farming operation under lease to a local rancher. An agricultural well and buried mainline system deliver water to the ranch’s irrigated fields. Improvements are modest yet functional and include a 1,034± square foot farmhouse, grain silo, and livestock pens. The ranch is located one mile south of the farming and ranching community of Mackay and its general aviation airport and 65 miles from the world famous resort community of Ketchum/Sun Valley over beautiful Trail Creek Pass.
