Property Description

Mesa Alta Ranch, situated in McKinley County, New Mexico, encompasses 11,734+/- acres of all deeded ranch land, which is hard to come by. This sprawling ranch sits at a range of 6,800-7,100 feet in elevation. Beautiful rocky outcrops and plateaus rise above the flat sections of the landscape.  The intriguing Native American ruins make up a complex located on top of a large plate. The property is located in New Mexico Game Management Unit 7, which is advantageous for Elk and Mule Deer. A truly one-of-a-kind property with multiple dirt tanks that hold an impressive amount of water during and after the monsoon season. Mesa Alta Ranch also has working solar and windmill wells that give year-round water when the monsoon season water eventually dries up providing water for livestock and wild game (which supports great opportunities to harvest big game).  The natural beauty of the sunrises and sunsets is second to none.  All basic amenities can be found within an hour of the Ranch in Grants-Milan, New Mexico.  On Mesa Alta Ranch you are constantly surrounded by unspoiled wilderness where endless exploration, recreation, discovery, and solitude await.
