Property Description

Lost Valley Creek Ranch

Location: Located in Malheur County and north of the unincorporated town of Ironside, Oregon, and west of the Malheur Reservoir along Willow Creek Road with good access to the State Highway 26. This area is known for its cattle ranches and hunting. It is only 30 minutes from Unity, less than an hour from Vale, Oregon, and just over two hours from Boise, Idaho. The area offers views of several peaks, including Ironside Mountain, Cow Valley Butte, and Juniper Mountain. While mostly comprised of rolling sagebrush hills with a scattering of juniper trees, it offers hidden gems. Which includes lots of springs, meadows, and draws hiding rock outcroppings, creeks, and brush, all in an ecosystem where big game and upland birds, thrive.

Acreage: The property, which has been family operated for 150 years, is now available for purchase. The 1,890± acres has exceptional grazing land and an extensive grass-filled meadow for cattle and resident wildlife. Springs dot the landscape, and seasonal Lost Valley Creek navigates through, providing water to the grazing animals and potential irrigation to the meadow. Several of those springs are developed for stock water tanks. Entering the property from the county road, you travel through the rolling terrain by a 40± acre field that was previously dry-land farmed. When you come around the next bend, it opens into a large 120± acre meadow where the creek also meanders. Private and serene, this splendid meadow is the highlight of the property. There are water rights available to irrigate the meadow. Many of the traits that benefit the grazing cattle, abundance of water and cover, are also the same characteristics that provide habitat for the upland birds. Power, fiber optic cables and phone services are available along Willow Creek Road.

Recreation: The property is a playground for hunters, within the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Beulah (65) Hunt Unit. Several Land Owner Preference tags are available, and over recent years, the seller has taken 19 elk of 6 points or more from his property (seller owns additional land). Mule deer, and bear are also present. In addition to the big game hunting, there are upland game birds; chuckar, sage hen and sage grouse. Not to mention the miles and miles of landscape for the out enthusiast for horseback riding, ATVs, hiking and the exploring.

Whether you are seeking a getaway or permanent residence, this land offers the variety and beauty of the high desert. Either of which provide opportunities for hunting, exploring the wildlife, or simply basking in the tranquility of nature. This ranch invites you to experience the richness of its habitat firsthand. This wondrous property is ready for a new family to create their very own legacy ranch
