have a lot of Folks that ask me to find them properties
that are against the National Forest or BLM Land.
Id like to take a minute & describe a little bit
of what I know about this.
In North Idaho, no matter where you are, youre
always close to a national Forest of some kind, typically
within minutes of it in one direction or another. Getting
to it is a matter of riding a motorcycle, an ATV, truck,
car, or just walking. 86% of this State is National Forest
or BLM land
so theres no shortage.
That being said, there are 2 kinds properties that are
adjacent to National Forest lands, and Ill describe
you buy a ten acre parcel that is contiguous to NFS lands,
the main question is are there also a bunch of other
10 acre parcels next to mine that are also contiguous
to the NFS lands? If there are, than you will have
a bunch of neighbors who all view the NFS lands as their
own personal backyard, making that area of the National
Forest crowded with neighbors. On the other hand, if the
parcels close to yours are larger parcels, than your chances
of having the forest behind your house packed with people
goes way down. Its all about how many other parcels
border the NFS lands, if its just a few, great,
if its a bunch, the NFS land doesnt really
lend any, or much value.
On accessing (private) properties that are within the
National Forest, if a open National Forest service road
passes through the property, you have a right to use that
road to access your property. If the road that accesses
your property is a closed National Forest
Service road, you can generally get a permit to use that
road exclusively for your access to your property, typically
it will cost $100-150.00 a year for the permit, and you
want to make SURE that its paid on time, by the
end of the year, every year.
