ALMO, Idaho — Castle Rocks State Park is offering pasture for cattle grazing from June 5, through Sept. 19. The state park contains remnants of one of the oldest ranches in the Almo Valley, which has included cattle on the landscape since the 1870s. The park’s master plan calls for the continued historic practice, and to utilize lease fees to offset over $7,000 in annual operational costs.
Up to 55 cow/calf pairs occupy pastures east of the granite rock formations and generally do not conflict with recreational activities such as hiking, and climbing.
