Situated at the base of the Sierra Madre mountain range just five miles from Encampment, Wyoming, in Carbon County, is the Jensen Ranch. Almost completely surrounded by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), this scenic 4,198 +/- acre mountain ranch for sale is comprised of 440 deeded acres, 3,170 acres BLM lease and 588 acres state lease.
The diverse habitat on the Jensen Ranch make it a popular refuge for mule deer, elk, antelope and black bear. Nestled against an aspen grove on the north end of the property is a well appointed 3,518 sq. ft. home with incredible views of the Snowy Range and Medicine Bow Peak, making this recreational land an exclusive private retreat for the outdoorsman.
Easily accessed via the Blackhall Mountain Road, the Wyoming ranch for sale spans over a mile of the West Fork of Cherokee Creek, a year-round tributary providing ample water for wildlife. Rising from 7,900 ft. to 8,800 ft. in elevation, the hillsides of this picturesque drainage are a nice mixture of open sagebrush, aspen groves and stands of mature spruce, fir and lodge pole pine. The combination of plentiful food, water and cover has allowed wildlife to thrive on the ranch.
Historically the ranch has been used as summer pasture and has ran 110 head of cows for 3.5 months. The Jensen Ranch would qualify for landowner elk and deer tags and is in area 13 for elk, a general elk unit, allowing for additional license opportunities. In the fall, when the elk begin to rut, it’s not uncommon to hear the echoing bugles of bulls vying for cows in the aspen behind the home. The Medicine Bow National Forest is just a mile south of the property and can be easily accessed via the county road or by a private well-traveled road that follows the creek up from the home. For the avid anglers the world class waters of the North Platte and Encampment Rivers are a short drive away.

- Vaulted ceilings

- Wrap-around deck w/ large gazebo
