Welcome to the Sangre de Cristo Ranches Website!

The Sangre de Cristo Ranches were developed in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range, with Mt. Blanca at over 14,000 feet, highlighting the scenery. To the west, the San Luis Valley is a fertile High Plains Desert, roughly 7,500 feet above sea level. The landscape of the 44,000 acre Ranches consists of mostly sagebrush and Pinon at the lower elevations, and Aspen and various tall pine varieties above 9000 ft. The Ranches are located about 5 miles to the south and east of Fort Garland, Colorado.

 

One thing the resident and non-resident owners of the Ranches have in common is the love of the land. The Sangre de Cristo Ranch Owners (SCRO) Association has been chartered to insure that the Protective Covenants of the Ranches are enforced. This keeps the land and resources, wildlife and residents safe and provides the owners the opportunity to enjoy the pristine nature and beauty of the land. The fees for membership in the Association are $25/Year, and help defray the many costs of maintaining the logistics of the Ranches. The Board of Directors (BOD), consisting of 7 members, is voluntary, and any Ranch owner may serve on It. The election of new BOD members is held each year at the August Meeting.

 

The Covenants were drawn up to protect the land, and the Board of Directors (BOD) suggests that each owner or prospective owner familiarize themselves with them. If there are questions, please feel free to contact the BOD for further explanations. There are email or Google phone links available on this site. The website also includes a Frequently Asked Questions page, where many questions or concerns may be answered.

 

In addition to the Protective Covenants of The Sangre de Cristo Ranches, the land is located in Costilla County, Colorado, and therefore is subject to all the laws, rules and regulations of both Costilla County and the State of Colorado. Questions about the use or development of your land can be directed to the Costilla County Planning & Zoning Department at (719) 672-9109. Questions about hunting, fishing or land use for recreational purposes can be directed to Officer Conrad Albert at the Division of Wildlife (719) 587-6900.

 

The Board wishes to serve all landowners of the Ranches and looks forward to any ideas, suggestions or feedback. Please call us at (719) 445-6819 or contact us here.

 

Again, we as a Board, thank you for your support, and pledge to try and serve your needs on the Ranches.

 

Marsha Wright, President
