Places to see near Ulhr Ranch
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Public land access
The security of a definite campsite with the opportunity to explore miles of public land. The property is accessible through dirt roads far from the main road making it quiet and secluded at night. These roads can be confusing, so make sure to follow the directions and pictures included. There is a building on the property making it feel more secure and established than a random field in the public lands. If you want to hike and bike all day and come back to a home base this is the place for you.
Funky place to hunker down
This is an inexpensive, funky, no frills place to park and sleep just outside of Toas. Rough, rutted couple of miles to get to it. Junked cars a common sight. High desert night views are incredible though! No water or shower offered. We did not see the host, but he communicated well.
Close to taos
Staying at Bryon’s property was a very unique and positive experience. His building is under construction and completely off grid. I think it should be featured on one of those shows. The area has places to do a little jeeping which was fun. I nipped into Taos a few times to site see and eat burritos. There is hiking all around and The Gorge Bridge which is spectacular! Bryon was super nice and I feel the value was great!
Perfect little spot to catch the sunrise and sunset on the mountains. I came to Taos to do some biking and Bryan directed me to some sweet trails close to the camping area. Definite bonus! The site is the perfect spot to get some peace and quiet away from the city.
Great views, dog friendly
Bryan and beau where super friendly, and made me feel comfortable right away. The directions confused me a little bit because the road you turn onto is “Montoya rd” but in Bryan’s instructions it’s says Martinez rd. Other than that the site was awesome! It was private, I felt safe, there were trails on the property which were awesome, and Carson National Forest was near by. The dogs loved being off leash the whole time and the views were awesome!
The only thing I was not prepared for was the wind, just a heads up! I used rocks to keep my tent from blowing away.
We drove to the site and decided that we should not stay there. The site would be much better with more upkeep and trash removal, but we did not feel comfortable staying there, especially with dogs who would roam and get into things. The site was right next to the end of the dirt road. The road was also pretty bumpy and would be best served with an SUV. Bryan was responsive when we reached out, but this was not a great fit for what we were looking for and took our chances elsewhere.
Bryan was excellent! I arrived pretty late so finding it at night can be tricky--his directs are great but you really need to pay attention. And he was in perfect communication with me until I got there.
The drive in itself is so beautiful. And just like he says the campsite was S-I-L-E-N-T. I'd forgotten what quiet sounded like and how much I needed it. The weather is just perfect this time of year. I loved the compost toilet. I would have preferred to spend a little time wandering around the area but arrived late and left early--his place was the perfect stopover.
