The property consists of 58.11± acres deeded. Approximately 6 acres are irrigated alfalfa hay ground, 10 acres are grass hay meadows/pasture, and 10 acres are wooded areas along the creek bottom. There are 24.5 acres of irrigation rights out of Kershner Ditch.
Shell Creek flows through the property and is an adequate water source for livestock and wildlife and provides sub-irrigation for the meadows. There are approximately 1200 feet of frontage on both sides of the creek and trout fishing is excellent.
Native rangeland lies south of the creek adjoining BLM lands which, in turn, adjoin US Forest Service lands — thus providing direct access to thousands of acres of public lands where one can enjoy a variety of recreational activities such as horseback riding, hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, etc.
