This vast Wyoming cattle ranch is located along the historic Oregon Trail.
Spanning more than 35 miles north to south, Split Rock Ranch encompasses three counties as well as historic landmarks from the Oregon Trail. The ranch name honors the Split Rock land formation, which is located on the property and was a landmark along the Oregon Trail.
As a working cattle ranch, Split Rock Ranch has a carrying capacity of about 1,200 animal units; as a recreational property, it offers 14 miles of private Sweetwater River frontage. Combined, it provides an ideal environment for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts who also appreciate the history-rich wide open spaces of the area. As for indoor amenities, there is 4,200-square-foot main lodge as well as a manager’s home, bunk houses, and cattle handling facilities.
“Split Rock Ranch offers remaining evidence of the Oregon, California, and Mormon routes, collectively known as the Westward Expansion Trails, and is embedded with documented Native American history and migrant stories of the struggles and successes exemplifying the spirit of man,” says listing broker Toby Griffith of Live Water Properties. “Having the opportunity to include your family name in significant American history and creating your own part of the legacy is truly rare.”
