Description

Ranch on the Clearwater River. About 3/8 mile of river frontage. An old rail road tracks runs between the river and a major portion of the ranch. This ranch is a recent inheritance property and the three heirs have decided to sell. The father of current owners took excellent care of this property. It is in a "parked out" condition. Nice meadows, nice timber tracts with nice usable river front. One of the owners is a company and broker is a managing member of the company.

Broker is a licensed drone pilot and has drone photos of the ranch available on request.

This is a "high end property", it is rare that property of this quality comes on the market.

The Clearwater River is a popular salmon fishing river.

There is no home on the ranch. The main ranch home has been removed. The good thing about this is that there are no major improvements factored into the price.

The main tax parcel number is RP33N04E195105, Idaho County, Idaho

The best place to stay if you come to look at this ranch is the Edgewater Best Western Motel in Orofino, ID. It is a 4 Star motel right on the Lodge At River's Edge. 208-476-9999 is the motel number. The motel is located about 25 miles from the ranch. Another place to stay is the Clearwater 12 Motel, in Kamiah, 208-935-2671. I live about 200 miles from this property and I stay at the Lodge at River's Edge most of the time.

Here is info on the rail road, "Camas Prairie RR: Camas Prairie Railroad Company (reporting mark CSP) was a short line railroad in northern Idaho jointly owned and operated by Northern Pacific Railway and Union Pacific Railroad.[1][2] The Camas Prairie Railroad was known as the "railroad on stilts" due to the many wooden trestles. In one five-mile (8 km) stretch, there were more than a dozen trestles.

The CSP was a remnant of railroad wars in the 19th and 20th century, when Edward H. Harriman and James J. Hill were fighting over this whole inland area to see who could get the most rails into the Pacific Northwest.[3][4]

The Camas Prairie Railroad was the result of that competition and in many ways, the end of the war. In the end, the railroads co-operated to build the Camas Prairie Railroad. The CSP was built to tap the rolling, fertile hills of the Camas Prairie and the timber of the forested hills and canyonlands of the Clearwater River.[5][6] The Nez Perce Indian Reservation was opened to white settlement in 1895.[7][8][9][10] Service to the south terminus of the second subdivision line at Grangeville commenced in December 1908,[3] and continued for 92 years.

Parts of the railroad are now operated by the Great Northwest Railroad and the Bountiful Grain and Craig Mountain Railroad (BGCM).

In addition to its wooden trestles, the railroad's second subdivision also had a sizable steel viaduct, 1,520 feet (460 m) in length with a maximum height of 280 feet (85 m).[11][12] Bridge 38 spans Lawyer's Canyon, between Craigmont and Ferdinand, and is visible from U.S. Route 95.
