Hiking Trails


The X Bar Ranch offers approximately 3 miles of hand-made nature trails that wind through the hills and valleys of the ranch.  You'll enjoy scenic vistas of both regions that convene here - the Texas Hill Country and West Texas - as well as a plethora of birds, wildlife, livestock and plants.  Interested in a hike?  Just step outside your door.  Trails at the X Bar have conveniently located access points near our facilities and are never crowded.

Oak Mott Sunset

Terrain at the X Bar Ranch varies from rocky limestone outcrops to valleys filled with sweeping grass and oak savannahs.  A true birder's paradise, the property offers opportunities to view a vast multitude of species both year-round and during migration.  Close-toed shoes should be worn on the trail and maps can be obtained by clicking the link below or, simply pick one up from the Live Oak Lodge.  Please take nothing but photographs and memories and leave nothing but footprints.
