Taylor Ranch

This working ranch boasts a suite of attractions for travelers. The unique landscape hosts many of our native prairie birds such as Mountain Plover, Scaled Quail and Cassin’s Kingbird. The ranch also boasts a high concentration of raptors including Northern Harrier, Swainson’s Hawk as well as nesting Ferruginous Hawk. Migrants have included Sandhill Crane. Arroyos, natural springs, and frontage along North Butte Creek make this a beautiful site to hike. A variety of reptiles such as collared lizards, blackcap snake, three species of horned lizards, possible leopard frogs and hog nosed snakes have been seen on the property. The owners can impart a great deal of the area’s lore, including knowledge of a site on the property where a hanging took place and are willing to give guided tours. Pronghorn, white tailed and mule deer, a variety of foxes and coyote frequent the ranch. The ranch’s livestock include rare British White cattle and Haflingers horses.
