The ranch is in Mohave County in northwest Arizona. The headquarters are about 45 miles north of Kingman via 18 miles on paved Route 66 and 23 miles on county dirt Antares Road, the headquarters are about four miles north of the county road. Antares Road bisects the southern end of the ranch for about seven miles. A rough and steep dirt road goes up the mountains from the headquarters allowing access to the northern and eastern portion of the ranch.
This is a desert to mountain ranch with very little adverse ownership within the ranch. The ranch runs from the Hualapai Valley to on top of the Music Mountains/Grand Wash Cliffs where it borders the Hualapai Reservation as the eastern boundary. Four of the deeded land parcels are complete BLM inholdings. The headquarters are on a 150 acre inholding that is in a scenic and private setting at the base of the mountains. Two parcels directly border the Hualapai Reservation and control BLM road access to the reservation and vice-versa to the BLM lands. Elevations range from 2,750’ in the southwest end near Red Lake to 6,769‘ on Duncan Mountain, the headquarters are at 4,000’ the upper mountain country ranges in elevation from 4,700’ to 6,000’. The lower elevation is extremely strong filare country with a mix of desert browses, the upper elevations have Pinon/Juniper and purple sage with perennials such as the typical gramma grasses. The topography on the ranch lends to a lot of natural barrier with the exterior boundary as well as interior pasture boundaries. There are older working corrals scattered around the ranch, the main corrals at the headquarters are wire and wood and are in good condition.
