Location: The 897-acre West Hills Ranch is located in Star Valley, which is an hour south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This picturesque, mountainous valley was settled in the late 19th century. It was proclaimed the Star of All Valleys by its settlers for its natural beauty and landscape. At 5,600 to 7,000 feet in elevation, the valley is approximately 14 miles wide by 50 miles long. Throughout the early part of the 20th century, agriculture became the focal point of the local economy with an emphasis on dairy farms. Star Valley has become highly sought-after real estate due to the exceptional fishing and hunting in the area. A 7,200-foot-long airstrip that can accommodate private planes is located east of the ranch in Afton, Wyoming. Commercial air services and todays modern conveniences are found in Jackson Hole and Idaho Falls. Salt Lake City is a 4-hour drive south of the ranchs front gate. Star Valleys premium location is due in large part to its proximity to Jackson Hole and Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
