About the Ranch

The Accommodations

Cazador offers secluded mountain cabin comforts in a remote and picturesque setting overlooking the San Joaquin Valley and open rangelands. Cazador is set up for a wilderness experience only an hour from I-5 and in the heart of California's largest private undisturbed native habitat. The cabin includes a full kitchen, dining and living area, two bedrooms with queen beds and a day bed, a large bunk room with four bunk beds, and two full bathrooms.

The Experience

Perched atop the southern extent of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Cazador is the perfect place to unplug and reconnect. At your disposal are hundreds of miles of roads and trails through a globally-significant biodiversity hotspot of rolling seas of grass, coniferous forests, centuries old oak and Joshua trees, abundant wildlife and seasonal streams, lakes and springs.

The Legacy

Tejon Ranch is classic California, a land of legacy - bigger than life, rich in history, blessed by nature. Established in 1843 as a Mexican land grant, this grand sweep of territory was home to some of the Old West's most illustrious exploits. Trappers, hardy settlers and frontiersman, outlaws, the Camel Corps, Butterfield stagecoach lines, and Army dragoons all traversed its range. Historic pioneers such as Jedediah Smith, Kit Carson, and John C. Fremont explored Tejon's frontier. As in the days of the vaqueros, cowboys on horseback still herd cattle on open grazing land. Vast stretches of the ranch land still remain in their natural state, serving as one of the few living links to an era of prestigious ranches, thundering herds and impassioned pioneers.

The Land

Traversing Tejon Ranch reveals a tapestry of rugged mountains, steep canyons, oak-covered rolling hills, wetlands, broad valleys, lakes, and seasonal streams. Deer, elk, antelope, wild turkey, black bear, bobcats, coyotes, and quail abound among a wide range of elevations from 413 feet in the San Joaquin Valley to 6,794 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.
