Located between Sheridan and Big Horn, WY off Upper Road, this 293± acre property is one of the few remaining small acreage properties in this area that is yet to be developed but still has all its development rights; nearly all of it has water rights (lots of water); unbelievable views of the mountains; a very nice, but modest small home and shop; plus, the location is excellent.
The ranch has approximately 270± acres under irrigation, 150± under side roll sprinklers. It is very productive and produced 460 bales @ 1,560# of alfalfa/grass hay.
Irrigation water from Park Reservoir (65 shares) and Big Horn Reservoir (157 shares; 88.45 A, 69.08 B) is delivered via Colorado Colony Ditch. Park shares are highly valuable as they can be transferred or sold. The Big Horn Reservoir water is valuable, but restricted to adjudication and agricultural use within the Colorado Colony Ditch Co.

The Upper Road Ranch is located about half way between Billings, MT and Casper, WY and just a few miles south of, or about 5 minutes from downtown Sheridan, WY in the heart of the Little Goose Creek drainage just a few miles from where it exits Little Goose Canyon on its way to the Tongue River. This watershed is, of course, part of the great land “where the rivers run north” that has been so coveted for over 130 years of ranching, but even prior to that when it was inhabited by the Plains Indians. The soils and the grasses have always provided excellent feed for the livestock and wildlife, but additionally, it’s the overall combination of water, soils and climate that has made this area such a great place to live.
The charming community of Sheridan, WY has most amenities and conveniences, including jet service and a commercial airport as well as world-class golf, dining, medical facilities, first-rate schools (rated among the best in the nation) and shopping in Sheridan’s historic downtown. Furthermore, and more distinctly, Sheridan is home to the annual WYO Rodeo, world-class polo, Brinton Museum, Don King Days and many other uniquely “Sheridan” lifestyle events that are sure to please everyone. For further shopping and air service, one can find it in Billings, or Casper, each about two hours away. Furthermore, the Big Horn Mountains are only 30 minutes to the west, where you’ll find all the outdoor recreation you can imagine.

The climate around the Sheridan area is one of the most “live-able” climates in Wyoming with pleasant summers and moderate winters. Perhaps it’s the proximity to the 45th parallel along with the positioning next to the Big Horn Mountains and the lower altitude, but the Big Horn Mountain foothills have always been one of the most desirable places to live for those who have experienced it. Whatever the reason, it’s hard to argue that this area doesn’t have the greenest and most pleasant climates.
