These 640± acres sit above Magic Reservoir in the Clay Bank Hills 20 miles south of Hailey, Idaho and the airport for Sun Valley. Bordered by federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management and a private ranch under conservation easement, the property is utilized as part of a local ranching operation and features strong native grasses and stock water resources that support early summer grazing. The ranch offers excellent building locations with views north across the lower Wood River Valley to Sun Valley’s Bald Mountain Ski Area and the high peaks of the Pioneer Mountains. Access from State Highway 75 is year-round, and there is power to the property servicing a stock water well. The ranch is also watered by springs and ponds that enhance seasonal grazing capacity. The property is located in hunt unit 52 and the Smokey-Bennett elk management zone and, because of its size, could qualify for landowner appreciation permits for elk, mule deer, and antelope. Boating, waterskiing, and fishing are minutes away on Magic Reservoir, and the Sun Valley area is home to a number of destination trout streams. This is one of the larger tracts available in the Sun Valley area.
