Cottonwood Springs South is a beautiful riverfront ranch containing 453 acres with over 1/3 mile of exceptional spring-fed Pecos River. There is a rare 4WD road down into the 250 deep canyon. In the bottom, the river forms nice pools around giant boulders and is lined with mature cottonwoods. On top there are a variety of fascinating sink holes as well as some stone ruins and runs of old stacked stone fence. For centuries, 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 unique rock formations. Fabulous bass fishing and turkey hunting with mule deer, quail, and waterfowl. Wildlife also benefits from 3 stock ponds. The Pecos River tailwater below Santa Rosa Lake is an excellent warm water fishery. 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. $495,000
