The Gila Cliff Dwellings, located in the extreme southern part of Catron County, contain the ruins of interlinked cave dwellings built by the Mogollon people around 1300 AD. There are 46 rooms within 5 caves, believed to be occupied by 10 to 15 families.

There are a number of hot springs in the Gila Wilderness area. The wilderness area is only accessible on foot or on horse back. This beautiful place  has areas forested with tall ponderosa pines as well as open meadows.

Portions of the Gila National Forest can be explored from two scenic byways; The Geronimo National Scenic Byway, and the Trail of the Mountain Spirit Byway, You can explore old mining towns, perhaps find old arrow heads and shards of ancient pottery.th th1

Catron County encompasses almost 7000 sq. miles – larger than several states – yet its’ population is only 3725 folks according to the 2010 census. Little has changed from the first census in 1930 when the population was listed at 3282. Of course, the 12,000 elk in the county make up for the lack of people!

The county seat is in Reserve. The name was derived from the establishment of three National Forests: Gila National Forest, Apache National Forest and Cibola National Forest, in the past called “Forest Reserves”

There are no stoplights in the entire county. When someone is scheduled to take a driving test, a temporary stoplight is set up in Reserve.

There are many cattle ranches in the county, several well over 100,000 acres. For the most part, cattle are still worked on horseback, part of the Western tradition continued by the current generation of ranching families and cowboys, while still providing some of the finest beef to the citizens of the U.S.

Living in Catron County is a wonderful experience as well as an adventure. There are cattle ranches and hunting properties for sale right now, contact us and we will help you find one.

It’s the middle of the winter in the South West Mountains of New Mexico and Mother Nature has been good to our ranchlands so far this year. Our cattle ranches and hunting properties have received lots of moisture; some rain but mostly in the form of snow.

In addition to creating a winter wonderland all that moisture will be very beneficial to our ranches as it will make our grasses grow early and plentiful, thus providing nourishment to both cattle and wildlife alike.

There is never a bad time to visit this beautiful region, call us and let us show you cattle or hunting ranches currently for sale in this area.
