Rio Rojo Canyon Ranch

2,648 Acres    ·    Colfax County, Springer, NM    ·    $2,150,000
Rio Rojo Canyon Ranch is an exceptionally wild place that remains relatively untouched by human hands. With the Canadian River Canyon providing the backdrop, it’s a visually stunning landscape teeming with wildlife. The 3,208± total acres holds 8 miles of the Canadian River and consist of pristine, secluded, wilderness habitat with zero people-pressure and no public access. High elevation grasslands meet deep canyon country along both sides of the spectacular gorge. Views of distant snow-capped mountains add a special touch of western drama.

The wild Canadian River is a fantastic wildlife corridor supporting a diverse suite of mammals, fish, and waterfowl. On both sides of the rim, old homesteads and stacked-stone ruins hold secrets of the past. Trophy Elk and Big Mule Deer thrive on this ranch along with Barbary Sheep (Aoudad), Pronghorn, Turkey, Mountain Lion, Bobcats, and Black Bear. Enjoy Unlimited Landowner Elk Permits in a game unit where there is almost no public elk hunting. Because of the habitat’s unique nature, this property has been under consideration by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish for the re-introduction of Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep.

Situated between two very large cattle ranches, much of which is State Land and National Grasslands, this incredibly private property offers incomparable hunting and recreational opportunities. A very comfortable, updated 1,800 square-foot residence in Springer, New Mexico is the perfect staging location and launch point for adventure. Springer is on Interstate 25, about two hours north of Santa Fe. Acreage is approximately 2,648± deeded acres and 560± acres of state lease.
