This is a beautiful, fairly flat parcel that looks out over the rangeland and surrounding foothills that lead to the lush Sprague River Valley. It is so peaceful here, you can hear the warm, gentle wind blowing across the plateau, and birds overhead. Many of the lots within the subdivision do not have homes yet, and many are used primarily for vacation or base-camp spots for the nearby outdoor recreation opportunities. This would be the perfect place if you are wanting to get away from a busy lifestyle and enjoy the peacefulness here.

This is the Hitching Post in the town of Sprague River, notice that there is still a place to hitch your horse! There is also a deli/cafe, a convivence store with fuel, and a few other small shops.
