Range Creek Ruins
Home to the richest repository
of significant Fremont Indian Archaeological sites in the World.
The Wilcox family has long been aware of the ancient ruins and only recently have visitors been allowed to access over 200 unspoiled sites of this ancient, mysterious culture.
Looking down Barton Canyon from the West Tavaputs Plateau, one can only imagine how the Fremont Indian Culture survived and flourished in this hard land.
Hiking the canyon rim during your stay at the ranch will give you ample opportunities to photograph these scenic and spectacular sites where the "Ancient Ones" of the Fremont once lived.
Tavaputs Ranch is the only privately owned ranch neighboring the now-famous Range Creek Canyon Ruins and the only ranch to offer "personal" guided tours of this historic site.
