The westernmost border of this spectacular property flanks the Wasatch Cache National Forest. This property features stunning picturesque views of the Wellsville Mountains, one of the steepest ranges in the Rockies. The ranch is 185 acres in size and affords plenty of privacy. Easy access to Diamond J is from State Highway 23 between Mendon and Wellsville, two towns that have escaped the dramatic growth and crowds seen further south along the Wasatch Front.

The eastern portion of the Diamond J rises gently from about 4,700 feet for ¾’s of a mile to the westernmost boundary which borders the Wasatch Cache National Forest at 5,100 feet. The entire 2½ mile property boundary is fenced. There are no building improvements on the ranch so a new owner has a blank slate to work with.

Climate

Pleasant summer months bless this region of Utah and the climate lends to lush green valleys in the spring and longer summer growing seasons.
