Trinity Bottoms Ranch
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Longtime cattle ranch less than an hour from Dallas provides the perfect urban escape with both cattle ranching, hay production, hunting, and river access. The ranch features sandy loam hilltops strewn with large oaks and pecan trees rolling down into the grassy river bottom pastures which can carry 250-300 head of cattle comfortably with rotational grazing.
Whitetail deer call the ranch home and there's a seemingly endless supply of feral hogs to provide year round hunting. The waterfowl hunting for duck and geese can be phenomenal and with some additional management could be enhanced.
Beautiful trails along Buffalo Creek and Trinity River allow for equestrian trails and/or ATV trails.
