Located in the Pioneer Mountains 45 miles east of the airport in Hailey, Lava Lake Ranch is an expansive agricultural, conservation, and wildlife property that is easily accessible to the amenities of Sun Valley and communities of southern Idaho yet instills a sense of being a world away. The ranch encompasses a footprint of approximately 825,000 acres and features 24,108± deeded acres in seven separate units and over 800,000 acres of associated US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) grazing permits, State of Idaho grazing leases, and private land grazing leases. From the Snake River Plain north to the crest of the Pioneers, Lava Lake Ranch spans 125 miles of diverse ecosystems within the Pioneer Mountains-Craters of the Moon landscape that consist of mountain peaks, foothills, canyons, sage steppe grasslands, forests of fir and aspen, and free-flowing rivers and streams. This vast, undeveloped landscape includes over 95,000 acres of conserved private lands and the 750,000-acre Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve. Wildlife here is prolific and includes wide-ranging species such as mule deer, elk, pronghorn, and sage grouse; carnivores such as gray wolves, mountain lions, and bobcats; and iconic species such as mountain goats and wolverines. Year-round recreational opportunities on the ranch are almost endless, and include big game hunting, wingshooting, trout fishing, birdwatching, trail riding, cycling, hiking, ATV touring, and cross country and backcountry skiing. Established in 1999, Lava Lake Ranch is highlighted by exceptional grazing resources, and its owners have focused on producing the highest quality grass-fed lamb and beef while restoring and preserving the lands used by the ranch. Building improvements on the ranch are modest but practical and sufficient to serve current operations. A series of conservation easements cover the majority of the ranch and allow for a broad set of agricultural, residential, and recreational uses.

Huff Creek Ranch is a well-run cattle and hay operation located at the base of the Pioneer Mountains eight miles east of the farming and ranching community of Carey and an hour’s drive southeast of the mountain resort of Ketchum/Sun Valley. The ranch consists of 1,888± deeded acres in two units: the 894± acre main ranch located along US Highway 20 and the 994± acre upper ranch lying six miles to the north and accessed by graveled county roads. The main ranch consists of sprinkler irrigated fields, meadows, riparian areas, and dry grazing lands, while the upper ranch is used for seasonal grazing and highlighted by extensive sub-irrigated meadows. The ranch includes a separate US Forest Service grazing allotment located 10 miles north of the upper ranch that encompasses 10,000± acres and accommodates 220 head from July 7th until September 21st. A 640± acre Bureau of Land Management (BLM) grazing allotment adjoins the main ranch to the north and runs 25 head from May 15th until September 15th. The main ranch holds multiple, adjudicated surface and groundwater rights to irrigate 579.5 acres, while the upper ranch controls a single surface water right to irrigate 40 acres. At present, the owner is irrigating approximately over 350± acres of cropland and pasture at the main ranch under four pivots and two wheel lines. Huff Creek, a year-round spring creek originating east of the property, flows for two and a half miles through the main ranch and provides irrigation water for the operation as well as habitat for waterfowl, upland birds, and big game. Huff Creek also fills several irrigation ponds on the property. The West Fork of Fish Creek, also a year-round, spring-fed creek, meanders through the upper ranch for two miles. With a combination of productive sprinkler irrigation and dependable summer pasture, the owner rates the ranch at 350± animal units, including cows, replacement heifers, bulls, and ranch horses. The main ranch features a comfortable and practical set of building improvements. These include a nicely remodeled four-bedroom, two-story home with a detached garage, a 50’X32’ shop building with a concrete floor and double overhead doors, working corrals, feed bunks, and several older utility buildings. Excepting a functional set of corrals, the upper ranch is unimproved. A set of corrals is also located on the forest service allotment. The area is home to a number of lakes and trout streams as well as excellent big game hunting and wing shooting for waterfowl and upland birds. The ranch is located in hunt units 49 and 52A and qualifies for a landowner appreciation program tag for controlled big game hunts. The resort amenities of Sun Valley, including world-class skiing, fine dining, and excellent golf courses, are located an hour northwest of the ranch.

Encompassing 1,226± acres and a remarkable two and a half miles of fabled Silver Creek, the Renegade Ranch is one of the premier sporting and lifestyle properties in the Sun Valley area. Nestled against the rocky foothills of the Pioneer Mountains, the ranch is conveniently located 45 minutes from Ketchum and the Sun Valley Resort and a half-hour south of the commercial airport in Hailey. With a reputation as one of the great spring creek trout fisheries in the world, Silver Creek is the centerpiece of the ranch, and few properties in the Silver Creek system offer as much stream frontage or privacy as the Renegade. The birch-lined stretch of Silver Creek flowing through the ranch is not only lengthy but incredibly diverse featuring gravel-lined runs, deep, undercut banks, and well-oxygenated riffles cascading over a basalt rock bottom. Angling opportunities and access to the stream corridor is greatly enhanced by an extensive road and trail network that leads to numerous prime fishing spots. Some of the largest fish in the Silver Creek system are found on the ranch with browns regularly exceeding 20 inches. Improvements complement the ranch and are highlighted by a 2,160± square foot “fishing cabin” located in a secluded aspen grove on the banks of Silver Creek. Designed by acclaimed local architect Jim Ruscitto, this comfortable, finely crafted log home features three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, an open floor plan, a large stone fireplace, and an expansive covered deck overlooking the creek. Upstream of the cabin is an outdoor venue with a fire pit and barbeque area ideal for creekside dining and entertaining. Other improvements include a three-bedroom guest house, manager’s residence, additional employee housing, equipment storage, and a large workshop with attached dog kennels. Although trout fishing is the predominant activity at the Renegade, the ranch provides excellent wildlife habitat and is home to upland game birds as well as elk and mule deer. The ranch is located in hunt unit 52 and the Smokey-Bennett elk zone and qualifies for landowner appreciation permits for controlled hunts. In addition to its recreational attributes, the Renegade features an active farming operation that utilizes approximately 250 acres of sprinkler-irrigated cropland to raise hay and grain. The Renegade is not covered by a conservation easement at the present time. However, because of the property’s size, location, and extensive frontage on Silver Creek, it is a prime candidate for one.
