Dramatic Canadian River Ranch with good access and good roads. This is Big Country with spectacular canyon and mountain views from high grasslands. Well over two miles of deeded river frontage owned between two adjoining properties. The northern piece is 1618 acres +/-. The southern piece is 2300 acres +/-. Located only 12 miles from the friendly community of Roy.
This country works like an inverted mountain. Grassland mesas give way to ponderosa pine-dotted ridgelines and huge, amazing views. Then there is a transitions from scrub-oak, pinon/juniper country down 1000 feet of elevation into bottom lands with riparian habitat where cottonwoods and willows make their home. ABUNDANT Wildlife including elk, mule deer, turkey, bear, mountain lion, and bobcat. UNLIMITED Land Owner NO DRAW ELK PERMITS.
Broken out of the 14,000 acre Maddox Ranch in 2007, these properties could benefit from additional fencing and a livestock watering system assuming a new owner wishes to run cattle as historically has been done. A neighboring rancher who developed, maintained, and supplied water to the Maddox would gladly do it again for these parcels. There are multiple stock ponds on each ranch and a newer test well just off the boundary line on the northern place.
An absolute paradise for the explorer, these ranches both contain many stacked stone ruins and long abandoned homesteads. Old cemeteries are scattered in the area, and the southern ranch adjoins the historic village of Armenta Plaza on the river. Numerous state land parcels adjoin, as well as some BLM. Whether with your ATV or Jeep, or your horses and your hiking boots, it could take you the rest of your life to see all of this incredible, multi-terrain property.
Furthermore, there are many choice building sites, and electricity comes off the rim down to a cul-de-sac on the dividing line of the north and south places.
Located between Wagon Mound & Roy, Santa Fe is 145 miles away. 'The Canadian Gorge is, simply, the biggest & deepest canyon on the American Great Plains' Dan Flores, Caprock Canyon Lands/UT Press. These two ranches complement each other and should probably be sold together, however the owners will sell them separately. You will not find another sprawling canyon ranch with river frontage and an abundance of wildlife for this price!
