The Skyline Ridge Ranch is situated on the top of the Wasatch Plateau mountain range in central Utah, surrounded by the 1.4 million acre Manti-LaSal National Forest, and accessed from the famed “Skyline Drive”. As one of the largest private land holdings on this entire mountain range, this rare block of private land runs from 8,000 feet to over 9,500 feet in elevation. The landscapes of the Skyline Ranch are dominated by large healthy aspen stands, punctuated by dense pines on its northern exposures, and by large alpine meadows which sweep across its gentle plateau-like topography. The numerous lush canyon bottoms are full of springs and small creeks, and almost 2 full miles of Gooseberry Creek runs directly through the ranch. Gooseberry Creek offers excellent fly fishing for surprisingly large cutthroat and rainbow trout, which flourish in its cold and clear high-mountain waters. Fishing for larger trout can be found within walking distance of the ranch, in the well-stocked Gooseberry Reservoir located on National Forest land. The Skyline Ridge Ranch protects areas considered critical for elk calving, and the large resident elk herds that inhabit the ranch through late fall offer some of the best hunting opportunities for trophy elk in all of Central Utah. This area is also famous for its trophy mule deer hunting, largely due to the mountain range’s jaw-dropping alpine aesthetics.
