Recreational Ranch with Timber For Sale in Latah County, ID
Flat Creek is large recreational timber tract nestled within the secluded forests of Latah County. The property gets its title from a creek by the same name which meanders along almost the entire length of the Eastern portion of the property. The approximately 1234 acres of moderately rolling topography is currently a haven for wildlife, but the property presents many other opportunities to its new owner.
With its well-stocked diverse timber plantations, Flat Creek would make a solid timber investment. Subsequently, the vast acreage would also be an ideal hunting retreat or grazing ranch for livestock. The land also provides plenty of suitable building sites for a home or cabin. Besides its natural splendor, the amenities of Flat Creek include partial fencing, good roads throughout, views of the Palouse River and availability of utilities at the highway.
The private atmosphere combined with the convenience of being close to town is another perk. Flat Creek is a mere 5 miles from Harvard, Idaho. Harvard is one of the three unincorporated towns named after famous Ivy League colleges in Latah County. It was one of the depot locations that Potlatch Lumber Company constructed a railroad through when they organized the Washington, Idaho & Montana Railway Company in the early 1900s. Today it lies along the White Pine Scenic Byway which directs travelers to the St. Joe National Forest.
This quiet community is centrally located to a multitude of recreational activities. Just 10 minutes to the northeast is Laird Park Campground which has a swim park, hiking, and horseback riding trails. Next to Laird Park is the Boy Scouts of America’s Grizzly Park known as the “Pride of the Palouse”. About 40 miles in the other direction, is the 5300 rugged acres of Mary McCroskey State Park which offers even more outdoor recreation, especially for horseback and ATV riders.
Harvard is in close proximity (approximately 27 miles) to Moscow, which is the home of the University of Idaho. Moscow is known for its arts and cultural activities, hosting events such as the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, the Renaissance Fair, and the Washington-Idaho Symphony.
