This stunning 342± acre ranch has lush green pastures surrounded and interspersed with mature stands of trees throughout the property for a breathtaking working ranch atmosphere.

The decreed amount is 3.8 cfs total from the Raber and Annie Raber ditches, with 1.4 cfs from the Raber Ditch (priority #73), and 2.4 cfs from the Annie Raber (priority 365).

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.
