Ranch Property Brief

Twin Canyon Ranch in many ways is like traveling in time from prehistoric times all the way up to early western settlement times. The ranch has been in the same family since it was originally homesteaded and the remnants of generations forging a living and surviving on this remote southwest ranch remain for others to wonder about their purpose.

The ranch consists of 3 parcels that are completely surrounded by BLM lands. Remnants of ancient volcanoes surrounded by carved sandstone bluffs and canyons set the backdrop for Twin Canyon Ranch. One can easily imagine weary travelers arriving at the ranch springs and upon setting eyes on this desert oasis paradise instantly deciding to travel no further and settle along the banks where the water emerges from the ground forming emerald green pools of cool water.


The ranch is located about an hour southwest of Highway 550 and State Highway 279 intersection off CR 279.
