Set upon the northwest corner of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Little Bear Ranch offers an incredible feeling of serenity and privacy to those who pass through its entry gate. The ranch abuts the southeastern corner of the 35,000-acre Two Bear Ranch located in the Whitney area of the Uinta Mountains.  Little Bear is easily accessible off the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway from the Wasatch Front (90 minutes), Park City (60 minutes) and Evanston, Wyoming (25 minutes). During the winter months, Little Bear is easily accessed from Evanston and requires a 20-minute ride over the snow on groomed trails via snow machines. Ownership of Little Bear provides endless opportunities for a new owner – finding a private mountain ranch within reasonable proximity to the Salt Lake International Airport and world renown Park City is becoming harder to come by.  The ranch provides a dramatic setting for a family compound or guest lodge with the great outdoors as your backyard.

Lay of the Land

Read More

Little Bear Ranch is 446.30 acres in size. The southern portion of the ranch consists mostly of large, open park-like meadows with a creek running through the center of the property. A hilly knoll in the center of the ranch overlooks several ponds and offers dramatic views of the snowcapped, high Uinta’s to the southeast. Mother nature provides for an abundance of native wildflowers during the summer months and the western boundary of the property is accented by a beautiful grove of quaking aspen which separates Little Bear from the 35,000-acre Two Bear Ranch. The north portion of the ranch bends into a dramatic meadow which falls gradually into a wooded canyon surrounded with hillsides covered with small ponds and forests of pine and subalpine fir. The majority of the ranch is located at roughly 9,000 feet in elevation and is relatively flat- most of the higher elevations at the northern end of the property don’t exceed 9,200 feet. The interior of the ranch is covered mostly with sage brush and native grasses. Riparian plants and shrubs surround Mill City Creek.

Locale

The western Uintas lies within the Wasatch-Cache National Forest, which was created by presidential proclamation in 1906, and the Cache National Forest, which was designated in 1907. The High Uintas Wilderness was established by Congress in 1984. It includes 460,000 acres and is the largest wilderness area in Utah.

Climate

The pleasant summer climate in the Uintas consists of dry, moderate weather with plenty of sunny 80-degree days. Temperatures occasionally drop into the 30s and 40s some evenings in July and August. The Uintas average 40 inches of precipitation annually, most of that coming during the winter months which translates into a snowpack of 4-5 feet by early March.

Recreation

Outdoor recreation opportunities abound on the ranch. Mountain Biking, hiking, ski-touring, snowmobiling and snowshoeing are just some of the options available to outdoor enthusiasts. The Mirror Lake Highway accesses hundreds of miles of ATV, mountain biking and snowmobile trails for those wanting to adventure out. The mostly flat and gradual rolling terrain on the ranch offers mountain bikers and Nordic skiers the ability to design and set trails through the open meadows and hillside Aspen groves.

Hunting

Little Bear provides prime habitat for mule deer, elk and moose and is adjacent to the established Two Bear Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit, a 35,000-acre ranch which qualifies under Utah’s CWMU (private hunting) program.

Fishing

For anglers, there are well over 1,000 natural lakes and 400 miles of streams in the Uintas which support populations of Brook Trout, Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout. Fly fishing in this region of the West is coveted by some of the best fishermen and women in the country.
