The property includes 200 miles of private roads that the brokers said could be used for hiking, trail running, mountain biking and ATVing. There are also 14 hunting camps spread across the property, each with cabins, water, propane and skinning sheds.
The property’s main residence is a four-bedroom home. There’s also a one-bedroom annex, a bunkhouse and four cabins for employee housing.
