Hiding deep within the realm of Sacramento Mountains, in the Lincoln National Forest, Timberon is a jewel in the Southern New Mexico. For both the New Mexicans and the Texans, it is a secret getaway. With the elevations of 7000 feet above sea level, the climate is dramatically different from its surrounding area. It is an ideal hideout from the summer heat as well as a winter wonderland during the winter snowing seasons.

Timberon has a small landing strip for private airplanes, a nine hole golf course which were expected to be eventually expanded to eighteen holes, a heated swimming pool for summer fun, a playground for little ones to play, and a fishing pond. The area is teaming with mountain wildlife: from mule deer, raccoons, wild turkeys, elks, black bearů

The land was a secret until the late Judge Paul Moss from Odessa, Texas. It served as their family vacation spot until Judge Paul Moss died. It was sold a couple more times until the forming of Sacramento Mountain Property Owner Association. The place was then no longer a family secret. Many other people, enchanted by the beautiful scenery, purchased properties in the area. The real estate bloomed as more and more people seem its recreational potential.

The draught for the past several years had been rough for Timberon. The man-made fishing pond has fallen victim the first, now it is a only giant hole on the ground where shrubs grow. The grassy golf course looked a bit sad during summer. The forest fire a few years back had turned a few mountain tops to charred ground.

Despite all these, the area still has its own charm. Its abundant in wild lives and its beautiful, majestic pines forest still draws visitors and residents from the surrounding area.
