Located in Teton Valley’s scenic north end, and just 15 minutes from the thriving mountain town of Driggs, the Teton Vistas Ranch on Bull Elk Creek boasts some of the best full range Teton views in the area. Currently run as a seasonal cattle grazing operation, the property is comprised of 320± deeded acres with approximately 230± acres of that being grassland pasture, 100± acres of which are flood irrigated. The balance of the acreage consists of creek bottom lined with tall cottonwoods and an elevated bench running down the center of the northern half of the ranch. Junipers, sagebrush and wildflower-covered hillsides create the transition from the grasslands to the rocky outcroppings of the bench ground and its 360-degree view of the ranch. From here, you will enjoy unobstructed views of the majestic Teton Mountains to the east, the Snake River Range to the south, and the Big Hole Mountains to the west.
In addition to the 100± acres of irrigable land, there is stock water associated with the ranch that, once developed from its groundwater source, will provide ample water for a modest cattle or horse operation. Although historically run as a seasonal cattle operation, the ranch provides exceptional habitat and forage for area deer and elk populations, which use the Bull Elk Creek drainage as they make their way to their winter range. The abundance of cultivated alfalfa and barley fields adjacent to the ranch will also attract native sharp-tailed grouse, as well as Hungarian partridge.
Access to the ranch is via a year-round, well-maintained county road. With power and phone to the property line, the Teton Vistas Ranch on Bull Elk Creek offers an incoming owner a true blank canvas in which to create his or her own private slice of Idaho heaven.
