The Smithneck Creek ranch is a great land investment in the Sierra! Located just five miles from Loyalton, CA off of Smithneck Rd. and just 50 miles from Reno Nevada. This unique alpine property has a little bit of everything one would expect and look for in a legacy mountain property; vast sub irrigated meadows surrounded by tall pines with year round Smithneck Creek running through the middle of it! Stampede Reservoir is just 17 miles farther down the road providing great fishing, water skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking etc.
There are no improvements on this unique property, it remains pretty much the same as it was a century ago. The land is ideal for camping, running some summer livestock and/or building the ultimate get-a-way cabin. There are several seasonal cabins in the area but none on such a desirable piece of mountain land. The property is in two separate parcels to be sold together. The property is completely fenced with 5 wire fencing. The few cabins in the area are all “off the grid” operating on alternative power systems. Access in severe winters is limited to snowmobile, snowcat, cross country skiing or snowshoes.
Highest and best uses for this one-of-a- kind mountain property might include; a family retreat, building your own get-a- way cabin, develop an RV pad site, graze some livestock, excellent summer camping, ideal for mountain biking, perfect for horseback riding/staging area or pack station. It’s simply a a good investment in quality alpine land with a live stream that can be used and enjoyed as desired!
