West Fork Fish Creek Ranch

$3,000,000 Sun Valley, ID 5,840± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Located in the foothills of the Pioneer Mountains 45 miles east of the airport in Hailey, West Fork Fish Creek Ranch is an expansive grazing and wildlife property that is easily accessible to the amenities of Sun Valley yet instills a sense of being a world away. The ranch features 5,840± deeded acres with diverse foothills and canyons, two small creeks, numerous springs, sub-irrigated meadows, aspen and chokecherry stands, wildflowers splashed across the hills in spring, and plentiful wildlife, including elk, mule deer, antelope, upland game birds, and numerous non-game species. Given its size, the ranch qualifies for two landowner appreciation tags for controlled big game hunts in coveted Unit 49. The property adjoins other private ranch holdings and lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and State of Idaho. The ranch offers excellent grazing resources and, together with an associated “sole permittee” BLM grazing permit and State of Idaho grazing lease, is managed for spring and summer livestock use. The ranch is part of a large, undeveloped landscape that features exceptional public lands and over 95,000 acres of conserved private lands. Just north of the ranch is BLM’s Friedman Creek Wilderness Study Area with access to thousands of acres of lightly used, wilderness-quality backcountry. Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve (jointly managed by the National Park Service and BLM) lies a short distance southeast of the property and encompasses ancient lava flows and over 400 square miles of protected sagebrush steppe grasslands. A series of conservation easements cover the ranch and allow for a broad set of agricultural, recreational, and residential uses. West Fork Fish Creek Ranch is currently the largest property available for purchase in the Sun Valley area.
