TRAIL MAP

On the trail.

DESCRIPTION

The trails are mapped, and they are in the process of marking the trails on the 800 acre ranch.  The terrain is grassy/sandy so no boots or shoes are required.  Trails are a mix of wide open hay fields, pecan orchards, to narrower single file trails through the woods.  There are lots of lakes/ponds, a few water crossings (though the crossings were dry when we visited in December), and gentle rolling hills.

We explored the Northwest section of the ranch and covered about five miles.  After lunch we then rode the only trail marked so far, the Red Trail.  On this trail we covered about three miles, but did not complete the whole trail.

Indian Spirit Springs is a beautiful place to ride.  The owners are very nice and friendly with a lot of knowledge regarding the history of the ranch.

TRAIL REVIEW PROVIDED BY TRACY & LARRY BLACK ON 10/30/14:

A group of us who like to drive went out to check out Indian Spirit Springs based on your recommendation off  WhereTheTrailsAre.com.  We had a fabulous time.   Jackie and her brother were absolutely  the best ranch owners and greeted us as we came in.  We are  a big rig, 66ft long and we had no trouble finding the place or getting in and setting up.   We did call ahead and gave Jackie a heads-up on our size.    Jackie had pens ready for us when we arrived.      The trails are perfect for HyperBikes (what I am driving) and the bigger carriages.      Thank you Tracy & Larry Black!
