The Canyon View Ranch is one of the best, if not the finest naturally suited year-round self-sustaining cattle ranches in the state of Wyoming. The entire ranch consists of 17,777+/- deeded acres and 880 +/- acres of state lease land. This incredible ranch is topographically diverse from the steep, rugged canyons to the scenic pine, cedar, cottonwood, mountain mahogany, and juniper tree-covered ridges to gently sloping pastures full of heavily sodded native grass. The main set of working improvements is in the native grasslands below the expansive Goshen Rim panorama. The ranch is astonishingly well watered by many prolific natural springs and developed springs and wells. This property provides an excellent ranching opportunity and easily sustains approximately 750 cow/calf pairs, balance of bulls and replacement heifers all on native range grasses with no supplemental feed required. It is ideally suited for a family-sized commercial operation, close to the Torrington livestock terminals in the favorable climate of the upper-panhandle of the Wyoming and Nebraska sand hill country.
The Canyon View Ranch has been operated as a traditional cow/calf unit for over a hundred and twenty years. The Canyon View Ranch is a low-overhead grass ranch with a variety of hard grass species that are high in protein content and produces excellent gains on cattle. The ranch is cross-fenced into approximately eleven pastures for flexible management and efficient grazing rotation to minimize the utilization of grass. All fences are in good condition. The many draws, ravines, hills, springs, and spring creeks provide an abundance of natural protection and forage for livestock and wildlife. Many of the draws along the Goshen Rim have chokecherry bushes and wild grapes.
Two wells on solar systems feed supply tanks. Ten other tanks run off other solar wells. Seven tanks are on a natural, but developed, spring fed pipeline system and two tanks are on individual, developed springs. One well is on a solar pump and is approximately 164 feet deep and located high on the Goshen Rim.
The Canyon View Ranch is located approximately 15 miles west of Hawk Springs, Wyoming on County Road 38, which provides easy, year-round access off this well maintained county road system. The ranch is also very easily accessed from the Slater Road Exit on I-25 approximately 22 miles north of Chugwater and 34 miles south of Wheatland, making it very accessible from Denver, Colorado; Cheyenne, Wyoming and Casper, Wyoming where commercial air service is available.
The Canyon View Ranch, located in elk hunt Area 3 and deer hunt Area 15, provides excellent hunting opportunities for mule deer, antelope and migrating elk because of the unbelievable wildlife habitat in the many spring-fed canyons with cover from pine, aspen, juniper and cedar trees. The Type 6 limited quota is 200 licenses for cow/calf elk. The ranch is also located near Glendo Reservoir and Guernsey Reservoir for boating, hunting and fishing. The upland bird and waterfowl hunting in the region is superb.
