The Riverbend Ranch is located in the quaint mountain community of Hanna, Utah on the banks of the upper Duchesne River. It is ideally positioned for easy access to the nearby National Forest and offers private blue ribbon live water so often desired in a Rocky Mountain ranch. Its proximity to the Wasatch Front and rapidly growing Summit County translates into real long-term appreciation and convenient access for more frequent enjoyment. Add irrigated alfalfa fields, rental cabins, and excellent development potential, and you've got yourself an income producing sporting ranch to invest in and enjoy for generations to come.
Riverbend Ranch is accessible year-round via State Route 35. During the summer the Ranch is only 45 minutes from Park City and 1 hour 15 minutes from Salt Lake City over Wolf Creek Pass. When Wolf Creek Pass closes due to snow (usually in late December) the Ranch is still accessible via Highway 40 around Strawberry Reservoir. The winter route adds about 30 minutes to the drive. The land provides a unique setting ranging from healthy riparian bottomland with live water river fishing to picturesque bench land alfalfa fields at the foot of Tabby Mountain. Native cottonwoods and willows grow along the river banks, while sagebrush and Gambel oak fill the un-irrigated bench tops.
Riverbend Ranch benefits from its location along the Duchesne River as well as being adjacent to the 12,000-acre Moon Ranch Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit. Both game and nongame species are abundant including elk, moose, mule deer, black bear, mountain lion, bobcat, and fox. Lush forbs along the river provide ample feeding and bedding areas for mule deer, moose, and elk. It is not uncommon to see large herds of 250+ mule deer including some significant bucks grazing the upper hay fields. The lower pasture land has natural ponds and wetlands providing habitat for a vast array of birdlife, including ducks, geese, cranes, and herons as well as various songbirds. Birds of prey such as red-tailed hawks, osprey, and eagles are often seen hunting along the river.
The crown jewel of the property is its substantial private frontage to the famed Duchesne River. The upper river and its tributaries spring from the alpine meadows of the Uinta Mountains and flow down through beautifully forested canyons. Eventually, the river begins to slow a bit and widen as it moves through Riverbend Ranch. This technical and unpredictable stretch of water is most intriguing to anglers as it provides a refuge for stout rainbows and browns. Most fish caught on the property are in the 14-18" range, but some large browns go all the way up to the mid-twenties. June and early July provide fantastic hatches of large stoneflies, green drakes, and PMDs.
With year-round access and ample water rights including culinary hookups, the Ranch is well suited for development. The terrain would afford a nice mix of bench lots overlooking the river and riverfront lots with views of Tabby Mountain. Zoning will allow densities as low as 1 unit per acre. In the meantime, the land supports a modest cow-calf operation of about 25 pair. Pressure-irrigated alfalfa fields produce two cuttings per year with good yields.
In addition to highly desirable deeded acreage, this offering includes a 5 bedroom 3 bathroom home overlooking the river, a large garage/workshop, 19 primitive rental cabins, and significant certificated water rights.
