Hill Country Cycling

Hill Country Cycling

The Hill Country offers most anything to those that love the land. The limestone cliffs, rugged canyons and clear waters of Bullhead Creek dominate my ranch. Thousands of cyclists visit this western part of the Hill Country often called the badlands and the best kept secret in Texas. Fly fishing, hunting, bird watching and photo safaris attract tourists. Cyclists ride the twisted sisters, the name for the three scenic highways, 335, 336 and 337, that make a breathtaking loop through the area. Pictured is the porch of the lodge on the property I have just purchased that joins my ranch, Ambush Hill. The ranch is at the end of the road and is located in a remote area that is home to abundant wildlife. Yesterday as I was checking the pictures on the surveillance cameras, I saw two antelope, something new. So far we have pictures of elk, sika, sika grande, black fallow, antelope, aoudad, axis and of course hogs, white tail deer and plentiful turkeys, a nature wonderland. We have feeders, mineral and salt blocks out for the wildlife. The cameras often show the animals licking the blocks whether there is corn out or not. In addition to the lodge, the new property also has a restored log cabin, a Kentucky horse barn with living quarters, a greenhouse and large barn and round pen. The creek runs clear through the land and the large native pecans shade the pastures. I’m making these accommodations available to select visitors. Call if you are interested.
