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.

Cottonwood Springs Ranch – North

Posted on: July 11th, 2020 by

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. Quality water like this is hard to find especially in Eastern New Mexico. Easy access via Interstate 40, one & 1/2 hours from Santa Fe or Albuquerque, two & 1/2 hours from Amarillo, and 10 minutes from Santa Rosa. $895,000

Canadian River Canyon Ranch

Posted on: February 5th, 2019 by

Dramatic Canadian River Ranch with good access and good roads. This is Big Country with spectacular canyon and mountain views from high grasslands. Over 2 miles of deeded river frontage. The northern piece is 1642 acres +/-. The southern piece is 1667 acres +/-. Located only 12 miles from the friendly community of Roy. 581 ACRES WAS ADDED TO THIS OFFERING ON THE SOUTHERN END! PRICE WAS INCREASED PROPORTIONATELY AT $500 PER ACRE.

The country works like an inverted mountain. Grassland mesas give way to ponderosa pine-dotted ridgelines and huge, amazing views. Then there is transition from scrub-oak, pinon/juniper down 600 feet into bottom lands with riparian habitat where cottonwoods and willows grow. ABUNDANT Wildlife including elk, mule deer, turkey, bear, mountain lion, and bobcat. UNLIMITED Land Owner NO DRAW ELK PERMITS in a hunting unit with no public elk hunting!

Broken out of the 14,000 acre Maddox Ranch in 2007, this ranch is currently being improved with new fences and grazing leases have been signed. Investment in the test well located in the center of this property is probably the next good idea. Currently livestock is watered from multiple stock ponds and the river.

A paradise for the explorer, there are numerous stacked stone ruins and long abandoned homesteads. Old cemeteries are scattered in the area, and the southern ranch is near the historic village of Armenta Plaza. State land parcels also adjoin, as well as some BLM.

There are many choice building sites, and electricity comes off the rim down to a cul-de-sac in the center of the property.

Located between Wagon Mound & Roy, Santa Fe is 145 miles away. “The Canadian Gorge is, simply, the biggest & deepest canyon on the American Great Plains” Dan Flores, Caprock Canyon Lands/UT Press. You will not find another sprawling canyon ranch with river frontage and an abundance of wildlife for this price!
