This property is not currently open to the public and is being used for cattle grazing.


Once open, residents will be able to explore more than 2,800 acres of rolling hills tucked into the heart of the Bijou Basin, featuring a carpet of short grass prairie and wildflowers, hidden ravines and 3.5 miles of the winding West Bijou Creek (dry 90% of the year).


Broad and extensive cottonwood galleries fill the bottomlands with four seasons of color, along with upland short grass prairies which support a diversity of wildlife and native shrubs such as juniper, scrub oak and wild plum.


Future amenities may include a trailhead with parking, picnic area, restroom, and a multi-use trail system that features views and vistas of nearly 10,000 acres of conserved lands surrounding the ranch.
