The Council Mountain Ranch consists of 1,650± acres in a private setting, located just 2± hours northwest of Boise, Idaho. The ranch is situated on the western facing slopes of the West Mountain Range in the Payette National Forest. Views of the Weiser River Valley and Cuddy Mountain loom to the west, with the Hitt Mountains just a bit further to the southwest. The habitat and terrain are ideal for mule deer, elk and turkey. There is lush forage throughout the property, along with timbered pockets of conifers in the drainages, creating wildlife havens. Cottonwood Creek flows through the southern portion of the ranch and is lined with large conifers, aspens and cottonwood trees. The ranch borders National Forest to the east along with some Idaho state land to the south. What makes this ranch so special is the close proximity to town and the 1650± acres that look and feel much larger because of the easy back gate access into the National Forest.
