Cerro Pelon Mountain is located in the heart of the ranch and is often referred to as the Galisteo Wave. It is the most significant landmark in the Galisteo Basin and can be seen for miles.
Encompassing approximately 20,662 acres (32 square miles.) Consisting of 16,208 deeded acres and 4,454 leased acres. This is one of the largest properties in Santa Fe County.
The Galisteo River, with its shady cottonwood canopy, meanders through the northern edge of the property. The land has been thoughtfully maintained, providing beautiful grazing pastures and an excellent habitat for the abundant wild life. The water rights have been actively managed and will allow the ranch to continue as a productive cattle ranch.
The property sits in the heart of the "wild west". Petroglyphs, pottery chards, and pueblo ruins can be found on the ranch. The property sits in the Galisteo Basin, a trade route for turquoise, malachite, and gold mined in the nearby Cerrillos Hills. Remnants of old mining equipment and campsites are also present on the ranch.
