Description

This offering represents a rare opportunity to own one of only five private parcels along the isolated twenty four mile stretch of Rock Creek as it flows from the High Uinta Mountains, through sacred Ute Tribal Lands to its confluence with the Duchesne River. The part of Rock Creek that borders this property is deeply entrenched in Tribal Lands and is arguably the most remote and inaccessible section of the entire stream. The owner enjoys the only private access to fish this stretch known for its thriving population of HUGE BROWN TROUT! An exhilarating ride down a private ATV trail (with 14-switch backs) drops you into the stunning isolated canyon 600 feet below. There among the towering cottonwoods, an angler can work the bends and undercut banks of Rock Creek for weeks without seeing another soul. The land here is considered sacred due to its rich history. Rock Creek is the setting for many fantastical legends of lost Spanish gold mines. Hidden Conquistador gold is said to be cursed and protected by the Native Americans in the area. One of the earliest Spanish missions was located just upstream from the subject property. There are many books and testimonials of early immigrants who found evidence of the early Spanish occupation. Bronze church mission bells, Spanish helmets, and swords, and many other artifacts have been discovered and documented. The most credible accounts come from the Ute Indians themselves who maintained an oral history that substantiates the brutal Spanish conquest for gold. We can attest that there is indeed gold in them thar' hills: if you fish Rock Creek in the fall during the spawn, you will catch elusive browns with bellies that sparkle with golden color. And, you'll likely be the only prospector on the river. What about hunting? You wouldn't typically classify 70 acres comprised of mostly rocky cliffs as a great place to hunt, but there are unusual circumstances at play that make this parcel a fantastic hunting spot. Small bands of mule deer frequent the abundant hay fields to the east. During the fall, the bucks pull back into the forest on the eastern rim of the property. The bigger bucks head over the edge to bed down along the property's high rock ledges above the river. A wise mule deer buck could not ask for a safer, more desirable habitat. The expansive Ute Indian lands west of the property contain one of the largest herds of elk in the Northeastern Utah. The early tribal hunts proceed the Utah State elk hunt and drive elusive bull elk to cross the river onto the listed property to gain access to the same steep ledges that the wisest of bucks occupy. There are only a few spots where elk can cross because of the steep cliffs, and this property is one of them. Power is located a 1/2 mile away from the property. A well would need to be drilled for water. Although the property is very steep, there are buildable sites along the cliffside.
