The sprawling 567-acre Lake Tulloch Ranch provides a hidden world just minutes from town. Tuolumne Table Mountain runs through this expansive property, creating an immense valley nestled between plateaus. A private, spring-fed bass and stock pond sits at the center of the breathtaking valley. Lake Tulloch runs along the mile-long western boundary, while the steep canyon of year-round Shotgun Creek delineates the southern border. Adjacent BLM lands add to the ranch’s boundless feel. This rich and varied wildlife habitat hosts deer, wild turkeys, migrating water fowl, and more than two hundred bird species. The Mediterranean climate is ideally suited for growing olives, grapes, nuts and citrus. The terrain of this blue oak savanna ranch varies from the shady creek-side and wildflower-painted valley meadows, to the vast rocky volcanic landscape of the Tuolumne Table Mountain. Spectacular scenery can be enjoyed in every direction, including panoramic views of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. Lake Tulloch Ranch is rich with California history – explore the remains of stone outbuildings, corrals and rock walls built during the Gold Rush; and Me-Wuk Indian relics scattered along Shotgun Creek. On the west side of the Table Mountain, a 75-acre conservation easement protects “Jailhouse Rock,” a world-renowned rock climbing spot, and many small mines and caves including the historic “If I Can Mine.” The property features three 12-foot high, 1,200-sf steel buildings on concrete foundations. One is a permitted residence with a well and septic system. The entire ranch is completely fenced; horses currently graze October through May, covering the cost of property taxes. Electrical power is available nearby from PG&E. Zoning allows division into parcels of 37 acres or larger, with up to two residences per parcel.
