A New Mexico Working Cattle and Elk Guest Ranch  …Not your typical Dude Ranch

Experience and enjoy a working ranch, nestled in the breathtaking beauty of the New Mexico Mangus Mountains. Explore miles of trails through forests of tall old growth ponderosa pine trees by horseback.

Other Pearson Ranch activities include:

  • Campfires
  • ATV Trail Riding
  • Fishing
  • Hiking
  • Mountain Biking
  • Mountain Air and Star Filled Nights
  • Wildlife Viewing

We are 5 miles back in the mountains. So no electricity, just old fashion kerosene or propane lanterns.Delicious home-cooked meals are served family style. You’ll have a clean and comfortable private room and spring fed, propane warmed shower you’ll never forget. You’re welcome to bottle and take home some of our spring water – it doesn’t get more pure than this…

The ranch is located 3 hours southwest of Albuquerque, with the ranch house at 7,800 ft. and the top of the ranch at almost 10,000 ft. If you live out of state and want to fly in, there are car and SUV rental agencies at the Albuquerque International airport – thus, enabling you to make the 165-mile, 3-hour drive to the ranch.

You choose the activities that interest you the most, and leave the rest to us. We’ll guarantee you’ll have a fabulous vacation and make memories that will last a lifetime. Our “Home on the Range” provides our valued guests with a true taste of the West – clean fresh air, wide open spaces, gorgeous New Mexico sunsets and quiet star-filled nights.
