Triple R Ranch

Nestled along the hills of the Rawhide Range, once the hunting grounds of the Sioux Indians, is the Triple R Ranch consisting of approximately 1,380 deeded acres together with 150 BLM leased acres for the total of 1,530 +/- acres. The ranch has a variety of terrains, which includes grass-covered meadows that flow into tree covered hills and a few canyons. The ranch is fenced and cross-fenced for ideal grazing rotation. There is excellent water on the ranch supplied from eight wells (four of which are windmills) approximately 80-180 ft. deep. Over a mile of underground pipe provides additional water sources in the smaller corrals which also have loafing sheds. The ranch is owner-operated breeding cutting horses and running 200 to 300 yearlings for five months of the year. The ranch could easily be used as a cow/calf operation. The Triple R Ranch offers a multitude of possibilities with its outstanding scenery, abundant wildlife, and first-class improvements.

Recreation and Wildlife
While located in an historic area, the Triple R Ranch is ideally situated for the outdoor enthusiast and sportsman. The ranch has outstanding game including elk, deer, antelope, and wild turkey. Located only 14 miles west is Glendo Reservoir, a state park with the same features. Just south of Guernsey is Gray Rocks Reservoir and the Register Cliff, where the early pioneers camped for the night after traveling from Fort Laramie eleven miles down the trail. For a different experience and an easy two-hour drive north are the Black Hills and Deadwood, South Dakota.

The Triple R Ranch is located 212 miles north of Denver (2 hrs. and 50 min.), 14 miles north of Guernsey, and 8 miles north of the quaint little historic western town of Hartville, Wyoming. The ranch is very private and secluded yet only a 25 minute ride to the interstate on excellent State highways. The ranch is 50 miles from Douglas, Wyoming, location of the annual state fair, and within 25 to 40 mins. of the county seat of four Wyoming counties. Located in both Guersney (population 1,200) and Wheatland (population 3,548) are motels, restaurants, shopping, golf courses, and medical services along with small jet air service capability. The area is rich in western history with the Oregon Trail, Pony Express Trail, and Register Cliffs just south of Guernsey, as well as the famed frontier military post of Ft. Laramie just 26 miles to the east. A few miles east of the ranch is the Texas Trail, where during the 1800’s, herds of cattle were trailed north along with the Cheyenne- to Deadwood Stage Route. Wyoming earned its statehood as the 44th state in 1890. The population of Wyoming is 467,000 statewide, with the second lowest energy costs in the nation and a cost of living index below the national average. There is no state income tax and Wyoming ranks among the top 10 states in the U.S. for educational performance. The Triple R Ranch has excellent improvements, tastefully done in western style, with a look and feel that takes you back to an earlier time.
