The Canon Canada Ranch
PROPERTY: The Cañon
Cañada Ranch is a beautiful 840 acre recreational/retirement ranch property
in northeast New Mexico, located 9 miles south of the little cowtown of
Roy. Most of the property is
situated on top of the Canadian River Escarpment that looks down on lower
tablelands with prominent landmarks with names like Kicking Foot Mesa and
Apache Point. The ranch is
accessed from a well-maintained county road that turns into a private,
recorded easement for approximately 1.5 miles into the ranch.
Incredible sandstone formations create a rimrock boundary in the
northwest corner of the Cañon Cañada
Ranch. The canyon walls
appear to be too steep for livestock to traverse, but there is a labyrinth
of good hiking trails throughout this area of the ranch.
These sandstone formations create hidden caves as well as rock
pedestals and overhangs. Many
ponderosa pine trees grow in this craggy area, and they seem to grow
straight out of the rock.
Views from this area looking west to the floor of La
Cinta Canyon, some 1,000’ below, are spectacular.
The boundaries of the Cañon
Cañada Ranch reach down from the mesa and nearly touch the aptly
named Kicking Foot Mesa just above the valley floor.
The balance of the ranch boundaries are fenced on top of the mesa; however, some of the southern boundary is beyond the fence and becomes a part of the Canadian Escarpment wall, which drops several hundred feet from the top of the ranch. Apache Point and Bell Mountain, which is located on the famous Bell Ranch, are easily seen from the rim on the south end of the ranch. Much of the Cañon Cañada Ranch is covered in piñon pine and juniper trees; however, approximately 200 acres of land was cleared of trees many years ago, creating a productive grass meadow for livestock and wildlife. Elevations on this beautiful property range from approximately 5200’ on the south boundary to 5773’ on its tallest hill. Average rainfall for the area is 14” to 16” annually.
WATER: A large earthen dam was built on the ranch many years ago at the head of Cañada Canyon on the eastern side of the property. Rain water and snow melt from a large area drain into the Canyon and supply water to the reservoir throughout the year. The owner relates that the dam has been dry only twice in the last 35 years, and both instances occurred during the recent drought.
is a water well located on the Cañon
Cañada Ranch producing a
constant flow of approximately 1 GPM.
This well is approximately 100’ deep, and around 60’ of water
stands in the casing. It is
presently equipped with an underpowered 12-Volt solar system.
produce more water from a stronger solar set-up.
Water from the well has a slight mineral taste.
The Cañon Cañada
Ranch, though primarily a recreational or retirement ranch property,
should work well as a small cattle or horse operation.
The present owner has run cows on the ranch over the last few years
at a stocking rate of 1 cow to 45 to 50 acres.
The ranch provides good grazing most years, and it has plenty of
winter cover for a year round operation.
WILDLIFE: The tree cover and abundant oak brush on and around the Cañon Cañada Ranch provide excellent habitat for wildlife species including mule deer, elk, bear, mountain lion and wild turkey, which are found on the ranch and in the area.
Harding County real estate taxes for last year were $29.72.
