True to its name, Hidden Canyon Ranch sits in splendid isolation along a single-lane backcountry road surrounded only by National Forest Service and BLM land. Framed by the high-desert slopes of the Santa Rosa Mountains, the ranch still hearkens back to the days when 19th-century gold prospectors flooded this area in search of their fortunes.

Along with water from the year-round Willow Creek, which bisects the 116-acre four-parcel property, a one-acre stocked trout pond stays full throughout the year and provides 82 acre-feet of priority water rights in an area where water access is of primary importance.

The rugged Santa Rosa Mountains preside over the Quinn and Paradise River valleys on either side of the range, creating an important watershed for Humboldt County’s many cattle ranches and farms as well as habitat for native wildlife.

The Santa Rosa-Paradise Peak Wilderness is a remote area of broad-shouldered granite peaks, high-desert basins and meadows that burst with spring wildflowers. Area wildlife includes mule deer, elk, bobcats, and upland games bird like sage grouse and chukar partridge.

Humboldt County is a large region of big mining and mineral extraction interests alongside farming and ranching. The county seat of Winnemucca has grown from an 1800s trading post for westward-bound wagon trains along the Humboldt Trail to a hub for the area’s energy and agricultural interests as well as jumping-off for numerous outdoor adventures including fishing, hunting and ATVing.
