Pole Canyon Ranch, managed by Phil and Lynette Barefield, it is accessible yet remote from the busy outside world. Established in 1911 by Lynnette's grandfather, Jim Taylor, and his brother, who rode their horses into this area in December of 1910 in search of land.

The ranch is now part of the Walter Taylor Estate and encompasses about 6,000 acres of beautiful canyon lands with running water in several of the spring-fed creeks. Abundant game and beautiful scenery make each excursion a memorable adventure.
