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.
