Offering beautiful views of the Burnt River Valley, the ranch is located south of Hereford, Oregon. The sale marks the first time the property has been offered outside the same family since the late 1800s. Containing 1,560 acres located in both Baker and Malheur counties, Rock Creek Butte Ranch has been managed as a successful livestock operation and hunting site for elk and deer.

The property has a variety of habitats ranging from high elevation sagebrush to timber and riparian areas. Two streams run water year-round and several springs have been developed providing access to clean water for livestock and wildlife. Several locations exist for the ideal cabin site.

Marketed as “base camp for eastern Oregon adventure,” Baker County is nestled between the Elkhorn and Eagle Cap mountain ranges and sits between three Oregon Scenic Byways. The county seat, Baker City, has garnered numerous “Small Town America” awards.
