Los Trigos Ranch is an iconic 612 acre Pecos River property just 30 minutes from Santa Fe. 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 owners, Bill Cowles and his wife Ginny, who raised and trained Norwegian Fjord horses on the property 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. A machinery barn and a small river cabin are 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. With its deep pools and white riffles, the river offers some of the best fly fishing in the state. Large elk, mule deer, and black bears roam the property. Los Trigos adjoins the Santa Fe National Forest on the north, offering endless recreational possibilities. Los Trigos is truly remarkable.
