Cherokee Rim Ranch
Situated in the Little Snake River Valley beneath Cherokee Rim, the 320 acre Cherokee Rim Ranch features over a mile of the winding Little Snake River, and hunting opportunities in both Wyoming and Colorado. The Little Snake River Valley is identified as a core mule deer migration corridor by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, and the Cherokee Rim Ranch sits right in the middle of it. Surrounded by BLM, a hunter would be able to follow game as they migrate along the river corridor to lower elevations in Colorado without crossing any private land besides your own. With more to offer than hunting alone, the Cherokee Rim Ranch provides endless recreation opportunities at a hard-to-beat value!
The Cherokee Rim Ranch is located 20 minutes West of Baggs, and just over an hour from Rawlins, WY, and Craig, CO. Access to the property is gained from paved County Road 4, from which a well-maintained dirt road spurs off to a two-track through a small portion of BLM that leads you to the ranch. During snowy months, winter capable transportation is likely needed to access the ranch. If you are in need of conveniences, Baggs has restaurants, groceries, gas, and a UC Health Medical Clinic. For luxuries outside of the basics, Rawlins or Craig is your best bet.
Sitting at 6,100 feet above sea level, the 320 acre Cherokee Rim Ranch is blessed by over one mile of the Little Snake River, creating lush wetland habitat which is relied upon by game both big and small. To the North of the ranch is BLM owned Cherokee Rim. Reaching 6,500 feet above sea level, Cherokee Rim provides a great vantage point over the ranch. The only improvements on the ranch is fencing along the river corridor, preserving the habitat for game and desired guests. The topography of the ranch outside the river corridor consists mainly of high desert sage and native grasses. Other recreational activities one could partake in on the ranch include ATVing, river floats, horseback riding, and fishing during peak flows of the river. Income potential is also provided by the Cherokee Rim Ranch if a grazing lease could be secured with a local rancher, or potentially an oil and gas lease. The greater Baggs area sees heavy oil and gas activity, and the nearby state-owned land in both Wyoming and Colorado has active oil and gas-related leases on them.
The Cherokee Rim Ranch is ideally situated for the avid hunter providing an opportunity to conveniently hunt in two states. The ranch is located within a defined mule deer migration corridor, and has access to three hunting units; hunt unit 100 in Wyoming, and game management units 2 and 3 in Colorado. Elk, pronghorn, and deer traffic can be found along the Little Snake River. Since the property is larger than 160 acres, landowner tags are available. If you aren't able to fill your tag on the 320-acre ranch, the ranch could be used as a base camp for the millions of acres of surrounding public lands that will give you plenty of opportunities to harvest.
