Northern Arizona Wilderness Canyon Ranch With Creek Frontage, Navajo County, Arizona Bordering the sprawling Sitgreaves National Forest in scenic northern Arizona is this selection of 160 ranch estates set amid lush juniper/pinon pine woodlands and scenic rain fed creeks meandering through rugged wilderness canyons. Once a part of the historic O'Haco family Ranch, these large secluded tracts are now available for the first time for private deeding. There are (8) individual tracts available, each of which is unique in its contours, view sheds, and individual attributes. The elevations range from 6,000 for the tracts located in the northern portions along Black Canyon Creek to 6,223 in the southern portions bordering the National Forest where the soils and range grasses provide excellent grazing conditions. Native grass varieties include blue and black grama, galleta, muhlys and needle grass. Primary brouse consists of chamiso, winterfat, fourwing saltbush and cliffrose along the edges of the canyons and arroyos. Frontages along a wilderness canyon with a seasonal creek are a rare find in this prime northern Arizona location. Ownership of portions of Black Canyon and several of its tributaries represents an exceptional opportunity to own riparian land. This part of north central Arizona is highly sought after by hunters and fishermen for its abundance of free roaming herds of elk, deer and antelope as well as the many freshwater national forest lakes that are stocked with rainbow trout and other sport species. The winters are mild averaging less than 14 inches of winter snow and the summers are warm and sunny. The average winter daytime highs range between 45 & 55 degrees. The average summer month high temperatures range between 80 and 90 degrees with nighttime temperatures at a very comfortable low 50s. The land is located eight miles north of the forest community of Heber, Arizona. Heber is a charming small town which offers a wide range of shopping and service related businesses. It is highly sought after for summer homes and cabins. The southern approach to these properties is from Heber via forest road 95 and ancillary other forest service roads. Forest service roads are subject to closure and are not to be considered as permanent access routes. The northern access to the land is off of state route 377 via roads built to access adjoining area properties. Confirmation of legal access has not been confirmed, although these routes are well established and have been in constant use for decades. The Coconino Regional aquifer underlies these tracts. This abundant aquifer will produce a plentiful supply of clean clear water from the northern Arizonas largest groundwater basin. Wells in nearby portions of the ranch produce excellent water from affordable drilling depths.
The zoning is AG-1 recreational, residential and agricultural. This allows for a wide range of uses with the exception of commercial or industrial. There are no deed restrictions and no HOA. Home construction, camping and RV use is at the leisure of the owner. When paid in full, the land can be partitioned in any configuration that the owner wishes. Arizona state laws and regulations govern the re-subdivision of land. Owners are advised to understand these regulations.
