PENDING / UNDER CONTRACT - One of our most private offerings, Tyler Creek is a rare checkerboard of sections that are almost entirely surrounded by National Forest land. The property is accessed at one gated location just a mile off the Interstate. It is undeveloped except for well maintained, roads that provide easy access to all corners of the ownership. The landscape varies from flat, gently rolling to steep, rocky outcroppings. Lowland aspen groves, bunchgrass meadows and unique rock formations are attractive features of the property that also provide habitat for wildlife in the area. Two perennial streams, Tyler and Harvey Creeks, traverse the property and support healthy populations of trout.
