Situated in a quiet part of Sanpete County, The Cox Ranch represents one of the larger undeveloped properties just outside of the town of Fairview. Known for its strong agricultural heritage, Sanpete County boasts lush green pastures, a great sense of community, and access to numerous recreational and hunting opportunities. The overwhelming feature of this property is its picturesque setting with a ridge of mountains to the east and valley views to the west. The ranch is 235 acres in size and affords plenty of privacy. Access to the Cox Ranch is directly off Highway 31 and just prior to the entry of Skyline Mountain Drive, one of Utah’s scenic “backways.”
The Cox Ranch rises gently from about 6,400 feet on its westernmost boundary up to 6,800 feet to the east. The entire 3 miles of the property boundary is fenced. The landscape consists of green pastures and rolling hills interspersed with stands of mature scrub oak, springs, and a small pond. Pleasant summer months bless this region of Utah and colder and longer winter months provide higher snowfalls which translate to lush green valleys come spring. There are no improvements on the ranch so a new owner has a blank slate to work with when building homes, barns, or corrals.
The ranch’s owner maintains a highly productive haying operation (a mix of grasses and alfalfa) and graze cattle on the property in late summer and fall.
The ranch would make an excellent horse property for the equestrian buyer. The ranch is located just west of Skyline Drive which in recent years has become a popular amenity in our state. Skyline Drive winds for over 100 miles along the very top of the Wasatch Plateau, providing access to forested mountains, alpine meadows, and numerous lakes and streams. Views of the mountain basins and surrounding valleys are incredible. The ranch is located in the Central Mountains-Manti/San Rafael hunting unit which permits Limited Entry and General Season deer & elk hunts. The ranch is also accessible to numerous access points to the Manti-La Sal National Forest which encompasses over 1,400,000 acres and provides numerous recreational opportunities including big game hunting, fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, ATVing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
Water shares used for irrigation and stock watering will be conveyed to the new owner
