High Timber is located in Rio Arriba County in north central New Mexico, 11 miles east of the highway 285/64 junction. It lies just below the Brazos Summit and provides some of the best views New Mexico can offer.
3,359.81 deeded acres
With 3,360 +/- beautiful deeded acres, the High Timber Ranch has all that is needed for the recreation minded owner. The ranch is blocked well and is almost a perfect rectangle on a map. This ranch shows big. You will think it has more acres once you explore the boundaries from top to bottom, side to side. Aspen, Blue Spruce, Douglas Fir are all common. Elevation ranges from 9,000' to 10,300'.
The highlight of the High Timber Ranch is the abundance of live water. Springs on the ranch provide ample water for seven earth tanks for livestock and wildlife. Three streams run through the ranch, one ephemeral. The two main streams flow year round - high in early summer and lower in late summer. These headwaters form Rio de Tierra Amarilla which ultimately drains into the Chama River. Small wetland areas are found throughout The High Timber.
There are a couple of larger ponds on the ranch that we believe with a modern aeration system could support trout for fun filled fishing. Rio de Tierra Amarilla is a native cutthroat fishery at its upper reaches.
Developed springs provide water to the owner's home and the bunkhouse.
Access to the ranch is very easy year-round. The property fronts paved New Mexico 64 and the road to the owner's log home and the bunkhouse are both considered to be year-round use roads.
High Timber is located in GMU 4 which supports some of the best big game hunting in the west. Elk, mule deer, grouse, black bear and mountain lions all call this area of Northern New Mexico home.
The High Timber is improved by an excellent quality, easily accessed modern 2 bedroom, 2 bath log owner's home. This home is powered by a whisper quiet 20K propane fueled generator. There is also a smaller 2 bedroom bunkhouse that provides great functionality for a cattle lessee/manager and or hunting lessee/manager near the entrance off highway 64. High Timber Ranch also includes a good set of shipping pens and scales. These pens are located near the entrance allowing transport trucks easy in and out of the ranch.
There are no minerals to be conveyed to a new owner. Due to its live springs and streams, The High Timber lies within a special zone of protection under a comprehensive set of stringent land use regulations which render mineral development impracticable.
