The Rancho Dos Arroyos is a very scenic property described as semi-rugged, beautiful and fairly remote. Elevations range from around 1,500′ to above 1,775′. Vegetation is generally dense over much of the ranch and generally consists of mesquite and low juniper. Soils are primarily fairly shallow and rocky with rugged hillsides and slopes consisting of rock and gyp outcrops.
The ranch is fenced and fences are generally all in good condition. A good network of roads serves the ranch well with access available to near all points.
The Dos Arroyos Ranch is located in northern Stonewall County, due west of Kiowa Peak, a prominent landmark in this rugged region of Texas.
Two live creeks flow through the ranch. Croton Creek flows through the property for almost two miles. Weddington Creek flows through the ranch for approximately 3.25 miles. These creeks have proven to be generally reliable as they typically seem to run water.
Aside from live water in the two creeks, there are approximately five earthen dirt tanks on the ranch.
HUNTING, WILDLIFE AND RECREATION
This general area holds good populations of wildlife including whitetail deer, wild boar and bobwhite quail. There are predators such as coyotes and fox as well as good migratory and native flights of dove.
There are two very nice 1,000 lb wildlife feeders located on the property as well as a nice insulated hunting blind that is included in the sale.
The Dos Arroyos Ranch is very nicely improved by a very nice move-in-ready modular home. This home is in brand new condition and contains three bedrooms, two baths, an office/storage room and three covered patios.
A large railroad container is located near the home that would be very useful for storing feed and grain, ATV’s, hunting vehicles, etc. Additionally, there is an insulated water storage building nearby that houses a large water tank and pressure tank.
Stories generations old tell of a copper mine that was worked by Spanish prospectors in the peak’s vicinity. According to legend the miners left a vast quantity of gold there when they fled from hostile Indians. Copper deposits in the nearby Brazos River reported by prospectors before the Civil War led H.H. McConnell and a group of wealthy men (known as the Washington and Texas Land and Copper Company) to search for the lost copper mines in 1872. The account of this exploration was detailed in the book M. K. Kellogg’s Texas Journal, 1872.
