This property is located along the Oregon Trail on Marmot Road near the Mt. Hood Recreational area. The land is suited for mixed use, ie timber, hunting, horses/cattle and recreation. A Clackamas County recreational use permit goes with the land. A year-around stream and several seasonal streams cross the property. There is road access on the southeast corner of the property.
TIMBER: A cruise done for us in 2005 estimated 800 MBF of merchantable timber, predominately Doug Fir. The biggest tree is a Black Cottonwood 6 in diameter. We planted trees on approximately 20 acres, and those trees are now about 20 high. Xmas trees could be grown on the 30 to 40 acres under the power lines. Zoning is TBR (Timber District).
HUNTING: Elk, deer, bear and coyotes frequent the property, especially for fall apples, during rifle and bow seasons. The animals come from several thousands of acres of contiguous forest land to the north. Adjacent BLM land rises up a 1,000 ft ridge, which then drops into the Little Sandy River watershed and the Bull Run River watershed.
HOME SITE: There is a potential home site near the original pioneer homestead site complete with the pioneer apple trees. An existing legal home site is being offered for sale, on the adjacent 5 acres, for an additional $325,000.
