Or choose a wilderness adventure – camping, hiking, backpacking, or horseback riding on over 100 miles of trails exploring the diverse mountain landscapes of this historic ranch. (History buffs will enjoy the remains of the many homesteads, a Ghost Town and and views out to The High Plains and The Santa Fe Trail.)
We have a long heritage as a working ranch with real cowboys, horses, cattle drives complete with star filled nights and howling coyotes. Large herds of elk roam the land along with deer, turkey, bear, mountain lion. Rare and beautiful birds such as eagles, hawks and migratory fowl occupy the sky and beautiful mountain lakes, ponderosa and mixed conifer forests, and aspen meadows, while many varieties of trout swim the pure spring fed streams.
For weekend stays or week-long retreats for friends, family reunions, weddings, private events, and some of the best hunting opportunities in New Mexico visit Wheaton Creek Ranch for the experience of a lifetime.
