The ranch is located west of Mayer and east of Palace Station in unincorporated Yavapai County, Arizona. The Mayer-Bolada Road (aka CO Rd 171) bisects the ranch providing gravel road access to most areas of the ranch. Other forest roads and the Senator Highway provide access as well. Mayer is 27 miles southeast of downtown Prescott and 75 miles north of downtown Phoenix on SR 69.

The ranch consists of the leasehold interest in the Brady Allotment on the Prescott National Forest along with the base/commensurate deeded property consisting of 59.32 acres. The ranch is fenced exteriorly and interiorly into 8 main rotational pastures. Topography is level to rolling on the east end near Mayer and gets more rolling to steeper as the allotment goes west into the Bradshaw Mountains and around Brady Butte. Elevation ranges from 4,800’ to 6,800’. Vegetation is a mix of plains and desert grassland with browse, perennials such as tabosa, side oats and black gramma grass, bush muley and curly mesquite are common in the area, browse such as mesquite, turbinella oak (scrub oak) and mountain mahogany are common in the area. Some ponderosa pine is at the higher elevations.

The deeded land consists of 4 patented mining claims in the Turkey Creek Mining District on the west end of the ranch, just north of the old mining ghost town of Goodwin. Elevations on the deeded land range from 5,800’ to 6,000’, topography is rolling to steep and there are ponderosa pines on the southern end around the building improvements.

Carrying Capacity and Acreage

The deeded land consists of 59.32± gross tax roll acres, the allotment consists of about 11,074± acres. The term permit for the Brady Allotment on the Prescott National Forest is for 130 head of adult cattle and 2 horses for 6 months from 10/1 through 3/31.

Improvements on the deeded land consist of a log cabin, two bunkhouses, a barn and corrals. The barn is believed to be located partially on both the deeded land and USFS land. To the south of the deeded land on the allotment near Turkey Creek are two storage buildings and some older wood corrals, one of the buildings is a hand hewn log barn which is rumored to be the old Goodwin schoolhouse. There are two small working corrals on Arrastra Creek and at Pine Flats and the main shipping pens are on the east side of the ranch near Mayer.

There is one well with a solar pump on the deeded land for domestic and stock uses. The ranch is watered from 2 windmills (pipeline with drinkers off one well to the shipping corrals), two earthen dirt tanks, multiple springs, seeps and natural water areas in multiple creeks and canyons. There are also several water haul spots off of the county maintained Mayer-Bolada Rd as well.

2013 property taxes for parcel 205-12-061 are $465.12, the 2013 grazing fee is $1.35/AUM.

The ranch is close to Prescott and Phoenix with good access, very few ranches in this area come up for sale. The deeded property surrounded by Prescott National Forest at over a mile high in the Bradshaw Mountains is in a scenic and private area, but still relatively close to the conveniences of town.
