The Red Lake Study area consists of almost 40,000 acres of private land within an approximately 150 square mile area. State of Arizona and National Forest Service land comprise the remainder of property in the study area. The area extends north 14 miles from the Williams City Limits. Highway 64 bisects the study area with the boundaries extending 5 to 6 miles to the east and west. The study area is bounded on the east by the center line of Range 3 East, to the north is the 6th Standard Parallel, the west boundary is an extension of the west section line of Section 2, T24N, R1E, and the Williams City Limits forms the southern boundary. Land uses in the study area have evolved slowly through the years. The primary land use has historically been ranching. Most of the subdivisions were platted during the height of land speculation in Arizona in the 1960's and early 70's. The commercial development in the study area was primarily established in order to serve tourists traveling to the Grand Canyon.
