The Sandy Ranch is just over 113 acres, but the topography of the land makes it feel much larger than it is. Sandy Creek runs for more than 3200' through the center of the property from west to east, and the north side of the creek is very much like Enchanted Rock State Park, while the south side of the creek feels totally different with huge trees, mossy boulders, and cliffs.
When the property was purchased in 2006 it had been completely overrun with cattle, but thanks to an effective Wildlife Management plan the land has been returned to its natural state. This is probably what Enchanted Rock would look like if it wasn't trampled by thousands of visitors each week. It is a true Texas Hill Country gem!
This is just a small sampling of photos which only touch on the variety of things to see. A more complete portfolio of Sandy Ranch photos is here.
