Now is your chance to own a piece of property in the beautiful Ramah Valley in western New Mexico. Ramah is widely known for its rural country living and one of the most photogenic lake landscapes known as Ramah Lake. You will be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful lake with towering red sandstone bluffs arising from the waters edge.
The property is located within Game Management Unit (GMU) 10 and in very close proximity to GMU 12, which are both known for producing trophy elk. This is a great central location for access to the Cibola National Forest, BLM and State trust lands in the area. Outdoor recreational opportunities are immense. Several miles of established hiking, horseback riding and biking trail systems have been established within the Zuni Mountains within the Cibola National Forest. Off-Highway Vehicle enthusiasts can enjoy miles of mountain roads and trails throughout the nearby National Forest. Within a short drive, you can visit McGaffey Lake, fish for some rainbow trout, or test your fishing skills at Bluewater Lake for some of the best Tiger Muskie fishing in the west.
The area is rich with historic Native American Puebloan occupancy and near the path Spanish conquistadors traveled in search of a medieval myth of golden cities to be found at a place called Cibola. Nearby El Morro National Monument provides an iconic sandstone phenomenon where Spanish conquistadors inscribed their names into the sandstone bluff while taking a break at a spring that provided water not only for them, but for their livestock. The volcanic landscape of the El Malpais National Monument offers visitors to explore the lava fields, explore tubes, or even see the flight of thousands of bats as they leave caves for their night flights.
The Pueblo of Zuni and the Navajo Nation are near the Ramah Valley. The Native American culture in the area offers beautiful artwork through jewelry, pottery and carvings and are sold locally.
