Romero Hills Ranch is 2,288± deeded acres of pristine forested land near the charming village of Mora, New Mexico. The Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Fire ripped through Northern New Mexico in the spring of 2022, destroying thousands of acres of forest, but this ranch was miraculously spared. Healthy pinons and large ponderosas cover the peaks and canyons. Healthy rangeland covers the lower elevations. Abundant wildlife, including large elk, mule deer, and black bears, wander this diverse landscape. Spectacular views of the Mora River Valley lie to the west and Hermit’s Peak to the south.

Romero Hills Ranch has excellent opportunities for horseback riding and endless hiking. Historical petroglyphs adorn several large boulders and caves. Located in Game Management Unit 46, the elevations range from 7,100± feet to 8,400± feet.

Romero Hills Ranch is private yet not isolated. It is located 35 minutes from Las Vegas, one hour from Taos, 90 minutes from Santa Fe, and only 30 minutes to skiing at nearby Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort. Morphy Lake State Park is only 18 minutes away, with trout fishing and canoeing in a beautiful setting. Coyote Creek State Park is 22 minutes away and is an excellent fly-fishing destination.

Enjoy cool summers with the convenience of easy year-round access via NM 518. Romero Hills Ranch is an ideal location to build your dream home with endless views of the Mora River Valley or build a private off-grid cabin deep in the forest with views of the iconic Hermit’s Peak.
