Hamilton Ranch Area Overview

Plenty of open space provides views of Erwin Lake, which is usually dry, as well as the nearby hillsides and forested mountains beyond.

  • Private gated community set far from valley activities
  • Rural atmosphere
  • Open views across Erwin Lake to the north and west
  • Mountain forest to the south

Natural Surroundings

This equestrian area runs along the southern edge of Erwin Lake, a usually dry lakebed. Some of the area is forested, primarily with Jeffrey pine and pinion pine, and some of the area is open with sage and other high desert brush. The Hamilton Ranch area runs along the National Forest border to the south and east where the terrain begins to rise toward Onyx Summit.

Jeffrey pine and juniper trees cover the sloping landscape to the south. The beautiful setting around Erwin Lake gives wide open views to the northwest and the lakebed is a favorite hangout for families of ravens. The open space also provides lots of viewing opportunities for other wildlife. The area gets less snow than further west in the valley and it melts quickly in the open areas.
