At 2974 +/- acres, Rocosa Ridge Ranch’s South Tract is far and away the largest contiguous property available within the highly sought out Bosque County. This ranch has been shaped and molded with meticulous care. The modern improvements have been well blended into the historical preservation and significance of the property itself.

The former governors of Texas’ picnic site is designated as a Bosque County historical site and the original stone smoker, concrete benches and piped water fountains still remain. This property offers excellent grazing along with superb hunting and recreational enjoyment. The entire perimeter of the ranch is high-fenced and water is prevalent throughout, including 11 irrigated troughs for livestock and native wildlife. The topography variance is stunning and provides multiple viewsheds with breathtaking unobstructed views for miles. The hardest decision one might have is settling on just one of the numerous locations to build a home. This is a rare opportunity to own a ranch of this size within this particular area of the state.

Elevation, Topography, Soils & Foliage:
Dramatic topography variance and incredible views are one of this ranch’s defining characteristics. In total, there is approximately 260 feet of elevation change within this tract. Spectacular canyons carve their way through different portions of the ranch creating productive low-lying areas contrasted against striking ridgelines. The tops of these ridgelines provide numerous viewpoints and each one paints a vivid portrait of the surrounding area. Each evening the western portion of the property delivers a theatrical performance of the sun setting over the North Bosque River.
The land has been sculpted to highlight its natural beauty through extensive care and intense labor. The first year and a half after acquisition was dedicated to a cedar removal program. Regrowth removal and prickly pear spraying are tended to on an annual basis. A large controlled burn was also performed. The results have produced lush grasses, clean roads and trails, gorgeous exotic wildflowers multiple improved food plots for hunting. The ranch is riddled with bustling oak motts and mature hardwoods that stand out against the manicured landscape.
The majority of the soils are Eckrant, Bracket-Eckrant, Purves-Maloterre, Maloterre-Tarrant and various Clays. The south tract has been used mostly for recreational purposes with very minor grazing. The pasture areas are comprised of native grasses.
The diverse blend of thick sanctuary areas combined with thinned portions and open pasture create a flourishing mecca for native wildlife and game animals.
The numerous draws and canyons create multiple concentrated runoff areas and seasonal creeks. These feed many ponds and stock tanks. The two largest ponds are approximately 3.5 acres and 3 acres in size. They both hold good water all year around.
There are two working water wells on the property. They are deep wells to the 2 nd Trinity Aquifer. One is a solar powered well that is located adjacent to the Ma and Pa Ferguson picnic area. The main well is located near the center of the property and is electric powered. The pump was just replaced on this well and has a transferable warranty.
