The terrain of the Crawford L Bar Ranch varies dramatically from high mesas with steep fractured rock ledges and ridges to lower wide valley bottoms. These rugged features offer unbelievable views throughout the ranch and include numerous massive steep protruding volcanic up thrust cones or "plugs", which tower over the surrounding country side. These volcanic cones have unusual and very striking features which were actually formed when molten lava exploded from deep within the earth.

Elevations on the Crawford L Bar Ranch vary over an amazing 2,000 vertical feet. Reaching 8,300 feet on the upper mesa country and descending to approximately 6,100 feet in the southeast corner of the ranch.


The ranch is adequately watered by wells, pipeline drinkers, numerous earthen tanks, springs and seasonal creeks. In addition, 57 acres located near the headquarters are irrigated by two pivot sprinkler systems. The ranch has 200 acre feet of permitted water rights. The irrigation well is approximately 800 feet deep.


Access is provided by an improved graded road and there is an excellent road network through the ranch. There is no public access through the ranch and the main entrance gate to the property can be locked to ensure privacy.


The wildlife features on the Crawford L Bar Ranch are very impressive. Game species include Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, Mountain Lion, Bobcat, Barbary Sheep, Turkey and water fowl. The Crawford L Bar Ranch is located in New Mexico Big Game Unit 9. In past years the ranch received approximately 30 bull elk rifle landowner authorizations, 8 bull elk muzzleloader landowner authorizations, 22 either sex elk archery authorizations and 56 cow elk authorizations.

A beautiful owner's home/hunting lodge is located on a high elevated mesa point overlooking much of the ranch.


The Crawford L Bar Ranch is an operating cattle ranch with the added bonus of outstanding hunting opportunities.


The owner of the Crawford L Bar Ranch has 50% of the mineral rights and 100% of the executive leasing rights. All of the owner's mineral rights will convey with the sale.
