Canyons Ranch

Crockett & Val Verde Counties


The Canyons Ranch is located on the southwestern portion of the Edwards Plateau, 42 miles south of Ozona, Texas. These 6,283.95 acres, situated right on the Crockett County/Val Verde County line, are characterized by multiple deep canyons, grassy plateaus, and long vistas in every direction. The beautiful views and vast landscape are just some of the many outstanding features of this Southwest Texas ranch.

IMPROVEMENTS: Very nice 3 bed/2 bath barndominium with a loft, an exterior office, and ½ bath. There is also a covered 2-car carport as part of the barndominium.
A small shop/storage room is underneath the carport, and a shed is adjacent to the building. The back porch provides excellent views of the plateaus and canyons.

WATER: An electric well close to the headquarters with a water storage tank supplies water to the barndominium. A large, dry water storage reservoir at the well could be converted into a swimming pool. An old header dam in the western-central portion of the ranch is currently holding water. Annual rainfall for this area is 18”+/-.

WILDLIFE: The ranch has abundant wildlife, including Whitetail Deer, Wild Hogs, Aoudad, Turkey, Dove, and Predators.

LIVESTOCK: The average stocking rate for this area is 64 acres/animal unit. The terrain is best suited to run sheep and goats, but additional water and fencing would be necessary. The ranch has been rested from grazing for quite some time.

VEGETATION HABITAT AND SOIL: The topography and terrain of the Canyons Ranch provide excellent habitat and cover for wildlife. Shallow, rocky soils cover most of the ranch, with deeper, loamy soils in the bottomlands. This ranch supports a large diversity of browse, forbs, and grasses. There is light to moderate brush cover throughout most of the property except the far East side, the low country on the North end, and some canyon bottoms that are more heavily wooded. Red Berry Juniper and Mesquite are the primary trees, with Oak trees dotted throughout the ranch. Other browse types include Lotebush, Yucca, Sotal, Catclaw, and Prickly Pear. A few of the more notable grasses on the ranch include Sideoats Grama (the state grass of Texas), Blue Grama, Black Grama, Buffalograss, Little Bluestem, and Green Sprangletop. The growing season generally begins in the middle of May and ends towards the end of September.

TOPOGRAPHY: The ranch has numerous canyons running in different directions. The plateaus consist of relatively flat to gently rolling terrain, with a sharp transition down the canyons to the partially wooded bottoms. The elevation ranges from 1,900 ft – 2,240 ft.
