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.

Occupying its own secluded valley 45 miles east of the airport in Hailey, the 4,840± acre Lava Lake Home Ranch has been the operating headquarters for Lava Lake Ranch for over two decades and is one of the iconic landholdings in the Sun Valley area. The namesake of the ranch is Lava Lake, a unique 50± acre natural lake that cushions the southern end of the Home Ranch along ancient lava flows and was a well-known landmark for westward-bound pioneers using Goodale’s Cutoff of the Oregon Trail. Ansel Adams photographed Lava Lake in the 1940s and included it in his historic images of Craters of the Moon. Lava Lake Home Ranch is bordered almost entirely by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands and includes over four miles of boundary with Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve jointly managed by the National Park Service and BLM. The Home Ranch also encompasses approximately 1,000 acres of BLM lands that are part of the associated Lava Lake grazing allotment. Home to herds of elk and mule deer, these BLM lands expand the property’s physical footprint and are inaccessible to the public. In addition to Lava Lake, the ranch features three spring-fed wildlife ponds, a five-acre irrigation reservoir, numerous springs, and several miles of Copper Creek flowing through a vibrant riparian corridor. Wildlife on the Home Ranch is abundant, and during the spring and fall, the Home Ranch becomes a birder’s paradise as thousands of waterfowl, shorebirds, cranes, and songbirds take refuge on the property during their biannual migrations. The owners established Lava Lake Ranch in 1999 and have managed it to sustainably produce the highest quality grass-fed lamb and beef. They are now looking toward retirement and are currently operating the ranch with minimum inputs and significantly reduced livestock numbers. The Home Ranch continues to serve as the winter unit for the owners’ remaining sheep and is being leased to two separate cattle operators for summer grazing. The Home Ranch holds multiple surface and groundwater rights to raise hay and irrigate pasture during summer months. Irrigation infrastructure includes two center pivots, wheel line sprinklers, and hand line sprinklers. In addition, the Home Ranch features a modest but practical set of building improvements that serve current ranch operations. These improvements include a ranch manager’s home, a barn, an equipment shed, a ram shed, lambing sheds, and stack yards. The Home Ranch lies at the heart of the Pioneer Mountains-Craters of the Moon landscape, one of the jewels of natural heritage in the northern Rockies. Supporting an array of wide-ranging and migratory wildlife, this remarkable region covers roughly 2.4 million acres and encompasses diverse land types, from sagebrush steppe, grasslands, and lava flows to river, foothill, and mountain ecosystems. At the core of the area is an intricate patchwork of land ownership that includes over 150,000 acres of private lands managed primarily as operating farms and ranches. These working lands, which include Lava Lake Ranch, connect large swaths of federal and state lands to the north and south that feature extensive inventoried roadless areas, wilderness study areas, and primitive areas managed by the Sawtooth and Salmon-Challis National Forests, BLM, and Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve. A conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy covers the majority of the Home Ranch and allows for a broad set of agricultural, recreational, and residential uses. A 120± acre section of the property located near the ranch entrance and encompassing the main buildings is located outside of the easement area and therefore is not subject to the terms of the agreement.

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.
