Of all the great Spanish Ranchos that help make up California, there remains one that is relatively intact in Southern Monterey County, and a prime Tule Elk hunt grounds. East of King City, 12 miles off Highway 101, hidden by the Gabilan Range, lays the Rancho San Lorenzo Peachtree. This grand old Rancho is one of the most beautiful and scenic ranches in the state. The beauty of this ranch in spring is unsurpassed. Wild flowers mixed with the green hillsides, along with the many lakes and ponds on this one of a kind ranch is a sight to behold. Add a Tule Elk hunt to this and it will be a hunt you will never forget.
California Indians made this hidden valley a resting place during their annual migration to the Pacific Ocean. The Peachtree Ranch is approximately 50,000 acres. The Indians found plentiful numbers of game for hunting. Here were quantities of stone to form arrow heads for hunting.
Spanish Ranchos eventually gave way to the influence of the U. S. Dollar. The Peachtree Ranch became headquarters for cattle barons Miller and Lux. It was Miller and Lux who saved the Tule Elk from total extinction. You now have the opportunity to hunt these magnificent animals on a ranch where the very people that saved the elk, ran cattle.
During the late 1920’s the Peachtree Ranch became an escape for many famous cowboys of that era, like Tom Mix, Gene Autry and Will Rogers just to name a few.
