Picketwire Ranch

Picketwire Ranch - Mountain land in Trinidad, Colorado The Picketwire Ranch mountain land subdivision is next to Historic Cokedale, Colorado approximately 20 minutes from Trinidad, Colorado, another Historic town. History buffs have plenty to explore right in their own backyards. This mountain ranch also appeals to the person who wants rural, off-grid, but close to the city type of lifestyle. Roads within the ranch are privately maintained and there is lots of BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land interspersed throughout this ranch that may never be "citified", making Picketwire Ranch one of the better values in Southern Colorado ranch style properties. Along with the historic, close to town amenities you'll find land of varied terrain - from the gentle pastures to the rugged foothills at an elevation of 6500-7400 feet. The ranch reminds us of the Native American "snake and coyote" medicines. Snake reminds us, among many things, to embrace the "wholeness" of our lives by transmuting inhibiting energies and "transforming" them to positives. Coyote medicine teaches us to find the humor in things, to laugh and have fun, to embrace the everyday with lightness. What better way to combine both of these medicines than to build your home here in Picketwire, and then sit back and relax, finding the humor and positives in the beauty and history that surrounds you.
