With nearly 17,000 acres of Oregon’s very best mountains, timber and streams, the Minam River Ranch is as wild and natural as it was 150 years ago when Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce tribes called this stunning mountain country “home”. This Oregon ranch for sale is like no other; 6± combined miles of wild and scenic Minam and Wallowa Rivers host healthy populations of rainbow trout, bull trout, steelhead and salmon.

The unforgettable sounds of bugling elk fill the dark, black timbered canyon each fall and you won’t believe your eyes while watching the charge of these majestic creatures while they fight to establish a pecking order in a large mountain meadow.
