Nestled on the western flanks of the Big Horn Mountains and surrounded on all sides by public land, this spectacular 11,200-acre property is the gateway for hunters, anglers, hikers, and equestrians to more than 20,000 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. Devil's Canyon Ranch also provides key habitat for a wide range of mammals and birds, including big horn sheep, elk, mule deer, sage grouse, and golden eagles, and boasts dramatic cliffs, sheer rock walls, and panoramic views of the Big Horn basin.

When public access through the ranch was cut off in 2001, The Trust for Public Land stepped in, buying the land and holding it for nine years until BLM could purchase it.

Now, this passage to cherished public lands full of prehistoric animal fossils, rich cultural history, and exceptional wildlife habitat will remain open for future generations to explore and enjoy.
