Loosely bounded by Highway 26 and the John Day River to the south, Eagle Rock Ranch climbs from 3,100 to 5,000 feet to offer varied landscape and unrestricted privacy. From hidden highland plateaus, the ranch is still just a short distance from the amenities of the city of John Day, including Blue Mountain Hospital and the Grant County Regional Airport which offers a 5,220-foot asphalt runway.
The Monarch Ranch is located in a historically rich section of Val Verde County. Following Texas’ independence from Mexico in 1836, John Coffee Hays is the first American recorded to visit Val Verde County in an effort to establish a road from San Antonio to El Paso in 1848. During his time tracking the road, he renamed the San Pedro River the Devils River, to fit with the difficult terrain.
