South Canyon Point Ranch
Resting high on the colorful bluffs of South Canyon Point are these 1,450± acres of tree-covered rolling hills and open meadows, with 18.92-acre ft. of new water rights. Amazing views of the La Sal Mountains to the North and the Abajo Mountains to the Southwest are breathtaking. Church Rock is located to the northwest, just off of the bluffs. Well-maintained San Juan county roads lead to the gated access, and the remoteness from towns and cities gives the property a secluded feel. The ranch has fencing and cross-fencing for cattle grazing. Open grass meadows dissect the tree-covered rolling hills and provide plenty of diverse foliage, which is great for the Mule Deer, Elk, Black Bear, and occasional Mountain Lion in this incredible setting. The property has four new water rights (one for each of its four parcels).

The property is part of the San Juan/Abajo Mtns. Hunting Unit. Mule Deer, Elk, Bear, Mountain Lion, Coyote, Bobcat, etc., roam the area. Hunting is by permit and can be applied for in the Utah DWR State draw. Landowner tags are possible & must be purchased and applied for via the landowner program. The nearby Abajo & La Sal Mountains have highly sought hunting tags through the State Draw.
The property is currently part of the local (CWMU / Spring Creek Dodge), and tags or monetary benefits are negotiated between the property owner & CWMU Operator.
Monticello Lake, Foy Lake, & Blanding Reservoir offer trout fishing. While the San Juan River offers carp & channel catfish, and Lake Powell is excellent for Striped Bass. Golfing at the Hideout is highly recommended, as it is one of Utah's top-ranked golf courses.

Church Rock is another area attraction seen from the bluffs of South Canyon Point. The Grist Mill Inn is a renovated old flour mill and a great place to stay.
