About Glade Road

The Four Corners area has an incredible history and is home to some of the most astounding Native American sites. Dead center of these sites lies Farmington, New Mexico and adjacent to the city limits lies La Plata Cliffs. La Plata Cliffs offers a very unique opportunity for a visionary or Native American Culture enthusiast. San Juan County New Mexico and the incorporated cities of Farmington, Aztec, and Bloomfield (Three Rivers area) are uniquely located in the geographic center of historically significant sites in the Four Corners Area of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado. The incredible ruins and cliff dwellings of the Ancients in the area were the homes of the ancestors of todays Pueblo Indians who are now mostly concentrated in Pueblos along the Rio Grande River and its tributaries in north-central New Mexico and the Zuni in western New Mexico and Hopi in Arizona. The mystic and cultural draw of New Mexicos Land of Enchantment and towns like Santa Fe and Taos are intimately tied to the present-day descendants of the Ancients or Anasazi. However, there is nowhere that has made a complete connection between the Ancients and the present. This is where the opportunity of La Plata Cliffs becomes very unique. La Plata Cliffs located just outside of Farmington is centered in the middle of 8 major national monuments and cultural heritage sites. Mesa Verde National Park Canyon of the Ancients National Monument Hovenweep National Monument Chaco Culture National Historical Park Aztec Ruins National Monument Salmon Ruins Bandelier National Monument Canyon de Chelly National Monument The sites are not only national attractions but international attractions. Travelers from around the world travel to see these wonders and often have to drive hours and hours to see them all. The Three Rivers area is home to Farmington, Aztec, and Bloomfield and is a short drive from Durango, Colorado served by jet serviced Durango-La Plata County Airport. Farmington is the 6th largest city in New Mexico and with its location relative to the Four Corners Native American cultural sites, is uniquely positioned to become a cultural destination. Add in the additional desirability of being located in the middle of some of the best recreation and the possibilities are endless. La Plata Cliffs offers an opportunity for a visionary to be in the forefront of that future. As part of the La Plata Cliffs offering of 369+/- acres (additional acreage can possibly be added bringing the total to around 400+/- acres) adjacent to the Farmington city limits and Glade Run Recreation Area, is Kokopellis Cave. Over 20 years ago the owner created their own hidden retreat by hydro drilling and blasting out an approximately 1,600 square foot cave that is 70 feet below the surface and has an entrance much like many of the cliff dwellings in the surrounding area. Kokopellis Cave is listed on National Geographic's Top 10 Worlds Most Unusual Hotels. The entrance to Kokopellis Cave is paved with flagstone and leads through a sliding glass door into a carpeted living area. The central pillar creates a free-flowing design and acts to separate the individual living areas. The cave utilizes natural passive geothermal climate control and stays between 62 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. There is a fireplace in the replica Kiva seating area, a dining area, pull out beds, and traditional seating. The bedroom flows off from the main room and has its own patio with views all the way to Shiprock as well. The bathroom is complete with a waterfall shower and hot tub. There is also a replica portion of a cliff dwelling that is not completed and could be incorporated into the Cave or used for storage. Kokopellis Cave provides awe-inspiring views from the cliff face overlooking the La Plata River Valley to the west. Kokopellis Cave is proof of concept of what could be developed on a large scale and become a major destination
