Providing a stunning backdrop to Bellevue, Cow Catcher Ridge Preserve buffers development along Highway 75 from the vast expanse of BLM to the east. The scenic ridge is dominated by rock outcroppings and sagebrush-steppe communities, including several varieties of sagebrush and various native grasses.

This setting provides excellent habitat for many species of songbirds, game birds, deer, and elk, and incredible views of the Wood River Valley for those who make the effort to venture to the top.
