Chimney Rock Ranch lies in the shadow of historic Chimney Rock on the Old Oregon Trail
Beautiful natural prairie scenery
Chimney Rock Ranch is a great combination of productive farm and ranch land and recreational splendor that is very affordably priced.
Chimney Rock Ranch is located just 20 minutes east of Scottsbluff/Gering, Nebraska just west of Chimney Rock National Monument. The historic Oregon Trail travels along a portion of the ranch with Chimney Rock to the east, the pine covered Wildcat Hills to the south and Castle Rock to the west. The North Platte River is approximately one mile to the north.
Water! If you are looking for water this ranch has lots of it. There are old ditch water rights from Castle Rock Irrigation Company and also two irrigation wells that complement the irrigation. Cleveland Creek runs through the middle of one of the two newer Zimmatic pivots. Then Cleveland Creek flows eastward to the sub-irrigated and irrigated meadows that supply year-round water for cattle or recreation.
Located in the meadow area is a small lake and a goose pit that is one of the Platte Valley's most reliable goose hunting spots. Large Canadian geese and Snows frequent this area. All through the year there are many different species of water birds frequenting the lake and the meadows. Swans, Pelicans and many other interesting birds come here.
Upland pasture completes the balance of the 1438-acre farm and ranch. Mule deer stay on the ranch and also travel between the Wildcats and the corn fields along the river affording some fantastic deer hunting.
There are two homes located on Chimney Rock Ranch. One is a five-bedroom ranch style brick home, and the other is a three-bedroom home on the meadow. Both have recently been remodeled and updated.
This ranch is truly one of a kind with many unique qualities and numerous income-producing opportunities. This farm and ranch offers a chance to leave a legacy in the family or simply as a great investment in agricultural land.
