This beautiful ranch has 160 acres of high plains rangeland with scattered cedar and pinion trees. Surrounded by ranchland on the north, west, and south, with paved road frontage on the east, it is easily accessible yet very rural and quiet.

National forest and BLM lands are abundant in the area and provide a multitude of outdoor activities. This ranch does not have mineral or timber rights.

This ranch is ready now for the horseman to add facilities to his or her specification and make this a showplace horse operation or for the person or family who wants a nice quiet rural lifestyle.
