The valleys and canyon walls are absolutely covered with several varieties of hardwoods including Cedar Elm, Maples, Live Oak, Spanish Oak, Black Walnut, Blue Oak, Madrone and Wild Cherry. The heart of the ranch itself literally is an oasis and a wildlife sanctuary nestled in the Seco Valley, surrounded by majestic hills and incredible limestone bluffs.
The hunting on the ranch is exceptional with the whitetail herd being under strict management for the past 20 years and only management deer have been harvested on the ranch the last several years.
