This Web site serves as an information resource for Wilderness Ranch owners and residents as well as those interested in our community.
Wilderness Ranch is a residential subdivision that offers rural living in a mountainous setting that ranges from high desert to subalpine forest. Our community enjoys four distinct seasons, our own system of trails, wildlife galore, and close proximity to state and National Forest land. Oh, and if you absolutely must leave, it's an easy drive to Boise, Idaho.

Partial Closure of Bridge on Rush Creek Rd
Posted on Nov 8th, 2017
An engineering inspection in October 2017 identified cracks and separations in two of four beams that support northern side of bridge. Cones are in place to restrict travel. Signs will be posted to notify drivers about one-lane bridge and yielding to oncoming traffic as you are exiting the ranch.  The one side is open for all legal vehicle traffic (those vehicles not requiring a special IDOT permit to travel on Idaho roads).

Ranch Hands
You can be a Ranch Hand without joining a committee or coming to a meeting -- simply be a good neighbor!
Winter is on the way! Be ready for the first and subsequent snow falls by taking the following actions:
  • Mount snow tires on your vehicle.
  • Have snow chains at the ready, and know how to put them on your vehicle.
  • Schedule extra time to get down the hill and back home again . . . just in case.
  • Drive slowly, stay off the brakes, yield to vehicles traveling uphill (in most cases) and keep out of the way of the plows.
  • Remember, Rush Creek Parking is only allowed in marked, designated areas and is limited to 48 hours.
  • Be patient with fellow drivers and the road crews. We're all in this together!
If you see something that needs doing, such such as shoveling and sanding the steps at the Mail Center, then jump in and do it. If it's something you're unable or unwilling to take on yourself, please contact a member of the appropriate committee.
