Call or Text Landio anytime for questions or to purchase this property. Please reference the Landio Property ID: Wy_Carbon_00031

Experience incredible Wyoming views right from your doorstep. This 2.02 Acre homesite is the ideal size to spread out yet easily maintain, and it opens up to millions of acres of diverse natural terrain. The property features breathtaking views of majestic Elk Mountain to the West, close proximity to Medicine Bow National Forest to the South, and access to thousands of acres of preserved Bureau of Land Management (Blm) land all around. You'll find endless opportunity for hunting, fishing, hiking, wildlife watching and outdoor recreation.

Enjoy the beauty of every season through expansive panoramic views - the lush green hillsides of summer, golden grasses of fall and sparkling snow of winter. The scene is ever-changing. The property features access to Mill Creek 300 feet to the North, a live water source that attracts many types of wildlife. When it rains, you can hear the creek rippling over the rocks, luring Birds, Deer, Antelope and other animals to the flowing stream. Carbon County Wyoming is known as the Pronghorn Capital of the United States, and you'll often find them grazing near the property.

While featuring the freedom of Wyoming's wide-open spaces, this unique homesite is still easily accessible - the best of both worlds. From the property, 310 feet of Road Frontage connects to County Road 404 (Pass Creek Road) just 1.2 miles East. County Road 404 leads directly to Interstate 80, which provides a straight shot to several larger towns and cities (read more in the Accessibility section below).

Recreational Opportunities

Drive about 40 minutes South and you'll reach the Bow River Campgrounds in the Medicine Bow National Forest. The Medicine Bow National Forest extends into Colorado and contains approximately 2 Million Acres open for year-round outdoor recreation. The portion closest to the property is referred to as the Snowy Range Area where you can hike, hunt, fish, snowmobile, ski, explore via off-highway vehicle, camp, horseback ride and mountain bike - just to name a few activities. Find out more about the Snowy Range in Medicine Bow National Forest at the Forest Service Website.

Avid Anglers travel from all over to fish the rushing rivers, tranquil ponds and winding streams within Wyoming. Turpin Reservoir is located within Medicine Bow National Forest as well as picturesque Lake Marie. Less than 2 hours North/Northwest of the property, the North Platte River feeds 3 reservoirs that make up the “Miracle Mile” for World Class Fly Fishing. Rainbow, Cutthroat and Brown Trout, along with Walleye and Carp, thrive in these waters. Visit the Wyoming Parks Website for more info.

Due to the sparse population and diverse terrain, hunting opportunities abound. For big game, seek out a trophy Elk, Pronghorn Antelope, Mule Deer, or White Tail Deer (Dan Artery's Outdoor Adventures can steer you in the right direction). Among the smaller game you'll find several species of Grouse, Ducks, Geese, Wild Turkey, Dove and Rabbits.

Visit the Historic Elk Mountain Hotel just 15 minutes from the property to learn all you need to know about the various recreational activities in the area.

Wyoming is the place to experience the raw beauty of nature.
