It is bisected from north to south by Dark Valley Creek which is easily the ranch's best natural asset.

The habitat surrounding the creek provide food and harbor for the various species of wildlife that call this area home. There is a 110 acre cultivated field fenced off to manage grazing. The creek has numerous pools that hold water in normal rainfall years. The terrain of the ranch is rolling to level. The western boundary lies at the foot of the Rocky Prairie plateau which offers a picturesque stage for incredible sunsets.
