Added 6/11  Nextdoor Migration Announcement Recently, the Communications Committee invited SFTR property owners to help us test a new neighborhood website - Nextdoor.com.  Our trial run with Nextdoor has exceeded our expectations.  There are already 166 user accounts representing 130 lots in the SFTR neighborhood.  Now it's ready for all SFTR property owners to use if they wish.  Please be aware that the SFTR neighborhood on Nextdoor will soon replace many of the features of the SFTR website.  It should also be noted that the discussion forum posting limit on the SFTR website has now been reduced from 8 to 4 postings per month with further restrictions planned in the future as the migration to Nextdoor.com continues.  Important notifications (road closings, water outages, safety-related announcements) will continue to be posted by board members and authorized volunteers on both the SFTR website and Nextdoor, however all social content is being moved to Nextdoor as these features will not be available on the new SFTR website.  This includes the discussion forum, the event calendar.  some of the What's New! (binocular) items, items for sale, the photo gallery, the pet registry, and more.  Many thanks to Michelle Blake who has offered to poll Nextdoor users to see if the pet registry features in Nextdoor are adequate or if they would like her to continue to maintain her independent SFTR pet registry website, so watch for this poll to appear on Nextdoor in the future.

In addition, ranch-owned businesses may want to register their companies at no cost on Nextdoor so that property owners can recommend them on Nextdoor.  An added benefit is that Nextdoor recommendations may be seen by other users beyond SFTR.  There are already five other Nextdoor neighborhoods in Trinidad and one other rural neighborhood in our local area.

We invite you to visit Nextdoor.com to review its features, terms and guidelines and sign up if you wish.  You must own property or lease a residence to join the SFTR neighborhood on Nextdoor.  During the signup process you will be asked for your email address and street address, and maybe additional information to verify that you are eligible to join.  You may also be asked to share information that is not required to create an account.  Look for the SKIP or NEXT button and use it when you don't want to give Nextdoor info about your interests, access to your friends email addresses, etc.  Also, review your Nextdoor account settings after creating your account to adjust your Privacy and Notification settings to your liking - you can hide your house number, and limit your postings to just the SFTR neighborhood.  Finally, please read the Nextdoor User Guidelines and follow them, as they will be enforced to help ensure a positive neighborhood experience for everyone.  Any users that have trouble signing up for Nextdoor (especially those without current mailing addresses on SFTR) should contact DeWayne Harris or John Sanders for assistance.

Thanks,
SFTR POA Communications Committee

Welcome. The Santa Fe Trail Ranch (SFTR) web site is dedicated to providing past, present, and future documentation and information to both resident and non-resident owners.  The beautiful Santa Fe Trail Ranch is nestled in the immediate northwest quadrant of the Raton Pass in southern Colorado.  It is commonly called the southeastern gateway to the Rockies, and is bordered on the east by Fisher's Peak and the Raton Mesa.  To the north are the Towering Huajatolla, more commonly known as the Spanish Peaks.  To the west is the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountain range.  The small town of Trinidad lies at the northern border of the SFTR, and Raton, NM, is located just past the southern border of the SFTR.  The Vermejo Park Ranch and the Crazy French Ranch are our nearest neighbors to the immediate west and east, respectively.
