The ranch comprises of spring, summer and fall elk range and is made up of +/- 50% aspen, Blue Spruce, Douglas Fir and Ponderosas, with approximately 50% in natural grass meadows.

(See Owner's Notes below for additional information)Over 20 years ago the father/son team of Charles and Cal set out to find their piece of the Western dream. Charles was winding down a 40-year career in ophthalmology to help Cal with his successful construction company. Living in the panhandle of Florida, the summer heat had them dreaming of cooler temperatures and beautiful mountain scenery. So their quest began to find the ultimate get-away. But before any decisions were made, they sat down and made a wish list of criteria for their mountain slice of heaven. The list included the following:Seclusion - First and foremost they wanted to be off-the-beaten-path. Paved roads and highway noise would not be acceptable. After all, you can get that anywhere and they would rather drop the truck into 4-wheel drive than put up with noisy roads. Wildlife - Being avid hunters and outdoorsmen they knew that they wanted an abundance of game. If the property was secluded but didn't have any wildlife, then what good was it?Climate - After spending their whole lives in the south, they desperately wanted something with cool temperatures during the summer months even if it meant dealing with the snow in the winter. They were both avid snow skiers and snowmobilers so having some fresh powder to play in was just fine with them. National Forest Access - Although having national forest access was not a deal breaker it was high on the list. This is where the seclusion criteria came in. Having national forest access on a well-traveled road is just asking for traffic. This ranch is just secluded enough to keep your average sightseer away. But it borders the Carson National Forest on its east boundary for over two miles thus opening access to thousands of acres.Accommodations - There needed to be someplace to stay while the boys decided what kind of Lodge they wanted to build. This ranch had a small log cabin that dates back to the early 1930's, which served as a perfect place to stay. With a new metal roof and a modern bathroom added it was very cozy. They have recently started building an impressive 3300 square foot lodge that will have 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms when completed. The lodge is 75% completed and livable. It just needs your own finishing touches.Charles & Cal spent weeks out west and traveled from southern New Mexico to northern Montana but they finally found what they were looking for in Rio Arriba County - the Yonderosa West Ranch. The 2390+/- deeded acres in the famed game Unit 4 and has some of the most pristine Northern New Mexico country you have ever seen. With elevations averaging 10,000 feet, the elk head has a perfect blend of open range and heavily wooded forest. The neighboring Carson National Forest was designated an elk calving area and no motorized vehicles are allowed. This place is an elk hunters dream! You can often count several head of elk right off the back porch. If you're hunting elk from the lodge you don't want to leave too early, especially before daylight, as you'll most likely spook the elk you didn't see. In addition to elk, there is a vast array of other species to pursue. Mule deer, black bear, coyotes, and the state of New Mexico just recently opened an antelope season to chase North America's fastest animal. There is a healthy population of antelope on the property in the warmer months.The lodge has a full basement with two single car garages. As the lodge is way, way, off the grid it currently uses solar electricity with a backup generator. There is a well that only had to be drilled about 50 feet deep and has never gone dry, even in the driest years. It has a 110-volt pump and produces some awesome mountain water. The property currently has two small stock ponds and countless other springs that could be utilized. There are two small streams on the property that are full of brook trout. It is only a short ride toward Chama to run into the Rio Brazos River that has beautiful scenery and big rainbow trout. This river is on the neighbors ranch to the west and can be accessed with the owners permission.As Charles & Cal grow older they realize that it might be time to pass this amazing place on to a next owner. Thanks for considering the Yonderosa West Ranch for your next adventure.

Lovely alpine vistas, a marvelous trout stream, four-season recreation, and one of the nation’s last operating narrow gauge railroads all make the Los Pinos Ranch, a rare treasure west of Antonito in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. Anglers, hunters, history buffs and solitude lovers all will appreciate the unique draw of the Rio de Los Pinos Ranch, just waiting for the construction of a very special high-country retreat. The centerpiece of this 287.7± acre ranch is the Rio de Los Pinos itself, an enchanting clearwater river, about 20 feet wide, that flows from Trujillo Meadows Reservoir about five miles to the west. On the ranch, it traverses for almost 3/4 of a mile in a series of lovely riffles and oxbow bends through natural grasslands. The river is a productive aquatic insect factory, with strong populations of mayfly, caddisfly and stonefly nymphs, which in turn, feed its wild trout population. Once the native range of Rio Grande Cutthroat trout (some of which populate nearby tributaries) this section of the Los Pinos now supports brown and rainbow trout that run in the 10- 12-inch range, with some reaching 16 inches or so in the deeper pools at the oxbow bends. Best of all, these fish love to take a fly, and the river offers brush-free, dry fly fishing at its finest in the summer months. Beginning flyfishers will find this water perfect for learning the sport, while veteran anglers will enjoy a season’s worth of challenges as well. Located at approximately 9,800 feet, the Rio de Los Pinos Ranch is a crisp-air retreat throughout the summer months, particularly attractive to wildlife lovers and photographers. Pines, spruce and aspen populate the eastern half of the property, and the river with its meadows the western half. In the fall, the aspen blaze and create a photographer’s dream. Wildlife photographers should keep an eye out for elk, mule deer, black bear and mountain lions, which are drawn to the creek for water on a daily basis. Although this is a true mountain property, it is accessible twelve months of the year via Colorado State Highway 17, a year-round paved road over Cumbres and La Manga Passes. Snowmobiling on the property and nearby is accessible, as this section of the San Juans generally receives a heavy snowpack. Downhill skiers will find world-class skiing at Taos, New Mexico, or Wolf Creek in Colorado, each less than two hours distant. The Rio de Los Pinos Ranch also boasts part of the right of way of the world-famous Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad that connects Antonito and Chama, New Mexico. Constructed in 1880, this steam-powered narrow gauge continues to operate in the summer months, carrying tourists through some of the most spectacular terrain in the Rockies. On the ranch itself and nearby, the photo opportunities of this steam-powered train are almost endless. The Rio de Los Pinos Ranch is in the heart of a wealth of recreation on the Rio Grande National Forest, including lake fishing at Trujillo Meadows Reservoir, big river fishing only a few miles away on the Conejos River, and hiking and horseback riding on a vast network of trails in the South San Juan Wilderness. For the culturally minded, the tourist and arts communities of Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado, are only a short drive away via paved highway. M4 Ranch Group is excited about live water properties that contain productive streams like the Los Pinos. Add in many other year-round recreational opportunities, year-round access, and a one-of-a-kind narrow-gauge railroad, and we think that Rio de Los Pinos Ranch is about as a perfect a site for an off-grid mountain retreat as can be found. This is a fabulous, out-of-the-way section of Colorado that may be just what your soul needs. Visit here once, and we believe that you’ll be charmed for life by this incomparably beautiful slice of the San Juan Mountains.
