Cumbres Pass

Posted on: November 11th, 2020 by

CONTRACT PENDING Romantic and western at the top of Cumbres Pass, this 27 acre parcel has 1,000 feet of Wolf Creek running through it! This is alpine country where aspen groves turn brilliant colors in the fall! Adjoining National Forest on its northern boundary, the Celebrated and Scenic Narrow-Gauge-Railroad passes thru the property close to where the shoulder of State Highway 17 defines this tract’s western boundary. Good building and/or camping sites present themselves as an old roadbed from the previous highway – level and accommodating. Are you a hiker or just have plenty of energy? Well the Continental Divide Trail passes nearby with trailheads just a few miles away – right at the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad National Historic Landmark. And besides your private water, there is more great fishing in the immediate area at Trujillo Meadow Reservoir and on the flowing Rio de los Pinos. As ranch brokers, rarely do Robert and I find a property more appealing to both of our sensibilities. This place hits all the markers; stunningly gorgeous, a stretch of private live water, game rich, value priced, and adjoining 1.83 million acres of public land. We’ve honestly discuss buying it ourselves but just have too many other irons in the fire. This easily accessible, stunningly beautiful land is located between Antonito and Chama. Lying at around 10,000 feet in elevation it is off-the-grid and will have its winter season to consider. Notwithstanding, show me a finer piece of unrestricted private property adjoining the Rio Grande National Forest. My impression is the train is only running in September and October when the fall colors attract a greater number of paying customers. I don’t believe this listing will last very long – think it will sell fast so don’t hesitate.

Bartlett Mesa Ranch

Posted on: July 11th, 2020 by

Bartlett Mesa Ranch, Colfax County, GMU 57
This 2,224 acres is a stunningly beautiful cattle ranch atop a high mesa with watered, open terrain that attracts big game. Boasting a very convenient location, this very private property is a perfect combination of serious ranching and exceptional hunting. Reduced $150,000 September 2020!

World Class Mule Deer and Trophy Elk love this ranch, but the seller only lets their trusted outfitter take between 3-5 Buck and 2-4 Bull Elk each year. The game unit has Unlimited Landowner Elk Tags and Over-the-Counter Deer Tags so broader hunting could be developed. Huntable populations of Bear, Mountain Lion, and Turkey also call the ranch home!

Sitting moments from I25 and the city limits of Raton, the ranch has been in the same family for many years. The excellent grasses can carry 400 yearlings or 150 pair from May to October. Three wells anchor a water system complimented by Soda Pocket Creek on the north and numerous stock tanks scattered across the mesa. Good cross fences separate 6 different pastures and there is an ownership interest in a handling facility located down the ranch’s approach road.

The eastern edge of the property looks down on Sugarite Canyon State Park and its picturesque lakes. The view from the southern edge frames the city of Raton below you with twinkling night lights. Most remarkable, the northern boundary is basically Colorado and the famous Crazy French Ranch – 19,000 acres of which was just acquired for the state for $25 million! The Crazy French is long known to be a sportsman’s paradise, and the Nature Conservancy and the Trust for Public Lands made quite the deal adding this coveted resource to public lands. The State of New Mexico is said to have its eye on Bartlett Mesa, and based on conservation organization’s interest in the area, a purchaser could likely place a functional conservation easement on this land – if they were so inclined and were looking for tax advantages.

Gentle elevation changes run from 7900′ to 8400′. Property taxes are $105 a year. 50% of seller’s mineral interest will convey.

Raton is 175 miles from Santa Fe and 150 miles to Colorado Springs. Trinidad, Colorado is just 20 minutes up Interstate 25.

$2,750,000/$1236 per acre

Cottonwood Springs Ranch – North

Posted on: July 11th, 2020 by

Price Reduced! Cottonwood Springs North is a private riverfront ranch with 1078 acres. 2 miles of Pecos River run through a scenic canyon. Rare road into river bottom. The river forms nice pools around giant boulders and is lined with mature cottonwoods. Dramatic side canyons also hold spring-fed pools in their bottoms. Historically this ranch is the southwest corner of the Jose Perea Land Grant which got contested after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hildago. The grant was held until it could be recognized thus the explanation for the many stone ruins and long runs of old stacked stone fences on the property. For centuries prior, Native Americans chipped arrowheads on the protected ledges overlooking the river making for great arrowhead hunting. This is beautiful canyon-edge grass-country interspersed w/ Mesquite, Pinon, Juniper, Oak, and Cottonwood accented with rock formations. Fabulous bass fishing and turkey hunting with some deer, quail, and waterfowl. The Pecos River tailwater below Santa Rosa Lake is an excellent warm water fishery.
