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.
