Wyoming hunting properties: Located in the shadow of Laramie Peak lies the Roaring Fork Ranch, an unspoiled chunk of Laramie Range high country with remarkable potential as a hunting and backcountry recreation base camp. The 10,272-foot Laramie Peak and its foothills are exceptional and give the sense that this is country with plenty of room to breathe. Directly adjacent to thousands of acres of the Medicine Bow National Forest, the 1,135-acre Roaring Fork Ranch virtually defines “elbow room”.
The Roaring Fork Ranch lies at about 8000 feet and includes outstanding elk habitat, with a native mix of pine, for, Aspen, and grass. The adjacent National Forest supports abundant populations of mule deer as well, not to mention black bear, mountain lions, coyotes and bobcats. Roaring Fork Creek, two ponds and multiple springs offer future fishery enhancement potential. With several fine building site options, the Roaring Fork Ranch could be developed into an ideal hunting lodge or retreat, or could be kept undeveloped as a hunting camp.
Although it has the feel of being remote, the Roaring Fork Ranch is remarkably accessible by a county maintained gravel road. The small resort community of Esterbrook is but a few miles away, Cheyenne is a little over two hours’ drive, and Denver slightly under four.
In the 1840s, thousands of Oregon Trail pioneers passed by Laramie Peak on their way to Oregon Territory. We think they missed something by not stopping here for good. Let Harrigan Land Company show you this piece of mountain paradise that shouldn’t be overlooked.
