Sawmill Canyon Ranch


The House: The main house is a beautiful 5,000 sq. ft., two‑story, five bedrooms, and five‑bath home. There is a large bunkhouse, garage, walk‑in cooler, meat processing room, a shop building and horse barn, working pens, and riding/roping arena. East of headquarters, at Burro Springs, are a horse barn and pens. The ranch is fenced and cross-fenced.

Topography: The elevation varies from about 5200’ on the south end to over 8000’ on the west and north portions. The topography varies from grassy plains breaking into moderate pinon/juniper studded canyons, to deep, rugged canyons and high, mountainous type terrain.

Vegetation: The most predominant grasses and browse consist of Blue gramma, Sideoats gramma, Hairy gramma, Sixweeks gramma, Tobosa, Sand dropseed, Oak, Apache Plume, and Mountain mahogany. The range is in excellent condition.

Precipitation: The average annual precipitation varies from 10 to 12 inches in the lower country to 12 to 14 inches on the north end.

Water: The majority of the ranch is watered by a very strong spring that is located just above the north boundary on USDA Forest Service property. The ranch has a water right on this spring that is registered with the State Engineer’s Office. There are four wells on the ranch varying in depth from 100′ to nearly 300′. There is a very extensive watering system in place that serves the entire ranch with a more than adequate supply and distribution of fresh and seasonal water for livestock and wildlife.
