Los Trigos Ranch is an iconic Pecos River property just 30 minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza. Los Trigos was part of Tex Austins Forked Lightning Ranch, later owned by Buddy Fogelson and his wife, actress Greer Garson. Owned and loved by the Cowles family since 1990, Los Trigos sits directly between the two properties formerly owned by Jane Fonda and Val Kilmer.
The six-building compound was custom designed by the architect and late owner, Bill Cowles. The cohesive exteriors of all buildings in the compound are Northern New Mexico pitched-roof style, with unique vertical wood planks and plaster chinking. The improvements include an owners residence, managers house, foaling barn with office, stables, workshop, and a detached studio. There is a machinery barn and a small river cabin outside the main compound.
Almost two miles of the trout-filled Pecos River meanders through the middle of the ranch, dotted by majestic cottonwoods and native willows. Deep river pools flow against stunning canyon wall backdrops, providing habitat for 20-inch rainbows, cutbows, and browns. Abundant wildlife, including trophy elk, mule deer, black bears, and mountain lions, roam this 612 acre property. Los Trigos adjoins the Santa Fe National Forest on the north, offering endless recreational possibilities. Los Trigos is truly remarkable.
