Property Description

Northeastern Arizona is land of scenic vistas, clean mountain air and quiet seclusion. It is home to free roaming herds of elk, deer and antelope which feed on its rich native range grasses and find shelter within its evergreen woodlands. Horizon Ranch is a small collection of private 37 acre ranch parcels now available for private deeding in this lush high country wilderness 25 minutes north of St. Johns, Arizona.
The ranch is situated high atop the scenic Colorado Plateau. At a cool-clear 6,200 elevation, the land is spread out over a series of high set ridgelines and gently rolling hills that blend into areas of lush open meadows carpeted with mountain wildflowers and nutrient rich grasses. There are a variety of landscapes and view orientations to choose from. Aromatic evergreens, gently rolling terrain, and sweeping wilderness views are all here. The land remains in a pristine natural condition. Anasazi Indian artifacts are found throughout the ranch. Ranch owners commonly retrieve pottery shards, spear points and arrowheads that were crafted by the Anasazi over 1,000 years ago. The land is within a short drive of Lyman Lake State Park. This 1,200 acre park is located 10 minutes south of St. Johns and features the 1,500 acre Lyman Lake with its fishing, boating, and scenic hiking trails. (see photo album)
