Coyote Creek Ranch New Mexico For Sale: A very private retreat for wild trout and big game, Coyote Creek Ranch near Angel Fire, New Mexico is nonetheless located adjacent to a paved highway and within a hour’s drive of three major ski resorts. This rare combination makes Coyote Creek Ranch a unique find for the angler or hunter dreaming of a private mountain retreat that doesn’t take a 4×4 and a chainsaw to access!
Situated at an elevation of about 8500 feet, Coyote Creek Ranch holds 878 acres of ponderosa pine forest and meadows in the uplands and healthy riparian habitat along Coyote Creek. The presence of the creek means that wildlife flourishes here, including elk, mule deer, bear and turkey. Hunters will benefit from landowner deer and elk tags, and turkey and bear tags are available over the counter. The fact that the ranch is completely surrounded by other private parcels only enhances the value of Coyote Creek as a completely private wildlife haven.
Coyote Creek itself is the precious centerpiece of the ranch, and it flows for nearly two miles through the property. In an otherwise arid state, Coyote Creek is a gem: a clear, year-round stream fed by consistent flows from Black Lake, just a few miles upstream. In addition to being a magnet for wildlife, Coyote Creek is a healthy trout stream, supporting solid populations of both brown and rainbow trout. Anglers of all skill levels will find hours of pleasure exploring its pools and runs for trout up to about a foot in length. Pool enhancement could easily be done to support even larger fish if desired.
Completely undeveloped except for a few ranch roads, Coyote Creek Ranch is a blank slate for the visionary owner. Gorgeous mountain views are available on every hand, and building sites for a private cabin or a hunting and fishing lodge are numerous.
Recreational opportunities surrounding the ranch are as plentiful as the brown trout in Coyote Creek. Angel Fire Ski Resort is only 10 minutes away, and Taos and Red River Ski Resorts are within an hour. In the summer, golf courses replace snowfields at Angel Fire and Taos, and hiking and mountain biking opportunities are abundant in the Carson National Forest. For the culturally-minded, artisan communities are thriving in both Taos and Santa Fe, the latter of which is only about two hour’s distant.
New Mexico properties with year-round trout streams don’t appear on the market often. Given Coyote Creek’s exceptional location and year-round paved access, we at Harrigan Land Company think this is a rare opportunity for the sportsman or investor who recognizes the many assets of this special place. Contact us if you’d like to see this private, yet accessible retreat in person.
