This outstanding Wyoming ranch consists of 4,000 deeded acres and approximately 1,000 acres of BLM grazing allotment. The ranch borders additional BLM and state land that is not included in the grazing allotment, totaling nearly 2,000 acres. Historically, the ranch has been used for summer livestock grazing of yearlings and cow/calf pairs. The terrain is diverse with a mix of willow-lined creek bottoms, sagebrush ridges and aspen groves along with deep draws and heavy timber. The Rim Ranch offers stunning views of the Wyoming Mountain Range, the Gros Ventre Mountain Range and the Wind River Mountain Range, which is home to Gannet Peak, the highest peak in Wyoming at 13,804 feet.
Middle Beaver Creek flows through the ranch for approximately 2 miles, and typically the creek holds water most of the summer. Additionally, there are 3 ponds that hold water year-round, which are supplied by springs and small creeks. The water provides an excellent resource for wildlife and livestock.
The famous Green River, a popular river for float fishing, and the Warren Bridge boat launch are 5 miles from the ranch. The upper section of the river, above Warren Bridge, offers fantastic areas for wade fishing that is open to the public. Many anglers visiting northwest Wyoming rank the Green River first on the list for fishing destinations. The headwaters of the Green River are at the Green River Lakes located in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, a short drive from the ranch.
