The Wilderness Ranch is one of the premier properties available in Northern California. Situated on 560 stunning acres in beautiful Humboldt County, this estate boasts 3 beautiful homes, several outbuildings, including a large finished storage building, workshop with an apartment and office, and a heavy equipment shed. The wild and scenic Mad River flows through the property for 1.5 miles affording endless recreation opportunities such as world class fishing for steelhead, salmon and trout, white water rafting, kayaking, or simply just relaxing on the sunny banks next to one of the dozens of swimming holes. Hunting is absolutely phenomenal with dozens of trophy bucks, herds of elk, bear, and ducks all occupying the ranch and its 23 ponds. Wildlife abounds, with golden eagles, bald eagles and peregrine falcons all nesting nearby. The Wilderness Ranch is entirely self-sufficient with power available through either a 55kw diesel generator with a fuel station or via a 75kw three phase/45kw single phase hyrdroplant that runs off Wilson Creek. Large developed and fenced garden areas are ready to plant vegetables, with a well established orchard supplying a bounty of fruit. Soil surveys have been conducted verifying 33.5 acres of prime ag. The property is entirely fenced and cross fenced for horses, cattle or sheep and has 2 horse barns, chutes, and corrals. Located just an hour from the vibrant college town of Arcata, or nearby historic Eureka, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy fine dining, entertainment, and shopping. The Pacific Ocean is just a little over an hour away for beach days, surfing, or excellent fishing for halibut, salmon, and rockfish. Originally William Carson's personal retreat in the 1860's, the Wildness Ranch is truly one of Northern California's most amazing and scenic properties!
