Truly one of a kind 493+ acre mountain property in the Sierra Madre Mountains. Battle Lake is 22 acres almost fully enclosed by the deeded lands and supporting a healthy population of Brook Trout. Fully inside the Medicine Bow National Forest boundary, this rare large inholding is approximately 10 miles SW of Encampment, WY along the seasonal access Highway 70. Covered in Spruce and Fir, with some Aspen stands and meadows. An artesian well could provide domestic water. The property elevation varies from 9,200 ft to 9,720 ft, offering dramatic 100+ mile vistas across southern Wyoming to the west. A dramatic escarpment above Battle Lake descends 1,100 ft from the peak of Red Mountain, formed by glaciers thousands of years ago.
Uniquely Wyoming, a few remnants of the historic Rambler townsite may be found. The Rambler (Carbon County) mine was located on the property but is no longer in existence. Composed of numerous patented mining claims it took some time for assemblage. To learn more about mining claims go to: http://www.1881.com/minedef.htm
Not to be confused with the “New Rambler” in Albany County, this Rambler was never in full production as the adjacent areas of the Encampment District were. More details can be found at http://wyomingplaces.pbworks.com/w/page/12716170/Rambler
