Los Trigos Ranch - San Miguel County, Rowe, NM

Los Trigos Ranch is an iconic Pecos River property just 30 minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza. 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 bear, and mountain lion, roam this 612± acre property. Los Trigos adjoins the Santa Fe National Forest on the north, offering endless recreational possibilities.

Originally part of the Forked Lightning Ranch assembled by Tex Austin and later owned by Buddy Fogelson and his wife, actress Greer Garson, the history of Los Trigos is rich and storied. 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 plank and plaster chinking. The improvements include an owner’s residence, manager’s house, foaling barn with office, stables, workshop, and a detached studio. A machinery barn and a small river cabin are outside the main compound.

Carefully managed, the forest provides cover and open meadows for wildlife. Multiple thinning projects over the years have improved the habitat and reduced fire danger, creating a lush growth of grama and other grasses. A series of springs provide drinking water for the numerous mule deer and massive elk on the property. Black bears peacefully wander the ranch. Wild turkey, quail, foxes, coyotes, and beaver are abundant. Red-tailed hawks nest on the property, and bald eagles are frequent visitors.
