Crooked Roads Ranch is a 668 +/- Acre live-water offering featuring over 6,800 ft of Cowhouse Creek in Hamilton County just a few miles north of Evant, Texas. The creek, views, wildlife, hardwood bottoms, and improvements are all highlights that make this an incredibly desirable Hill Country property.
WATER: Crooked Roads Ranch has a staggering 1.25 ± miles of live-water along Cowhouse Creek. This limestone-lined creek was named after the natural shelters formed by limestone bluffs along its banks and is the primary water source feeding into Lake Belton. There are pockets along the creek on Crooked Roads Ranch that are up to 15-20 feet deep including the infamous Mill Hole that has reportedly never gone dry. The water is deep enough along one stretch that there is rope swing secured to a towering pecan tree providing endless summer fun. Along with the creek, there are a few small stock tanks. There are also three water wells on the property; one of them being submersible and boasting 35 gallons per minute, as well as two shallow windmill wells.
TOPOGRAPHY: The topography on Crooked Roads Ranch is varied with an elevation of 1,020± ft along the creek and over 1,240± ft atop a plateau. There is a drastic change in elevation on the southeastern portion of the ranch highlighted by a prominent limestone ridge. This ridge wraps around the entirety of a coastal field overlooking Cowhouse Creek providing incredible views. There have been Indian artifacts found along the ridge as it was likely a great lookout point for Native Americans from times past.
VEGETATION: The eastern side of the property consists of primarily hardwood bottoms along the creek including pecans, elms, oaks, and cottonwoods as well as 95 +/- acres of fertile coastal fields. The western portion of the property sits atop a large plateau with dense oak cover and scattered cedars.
WILDLIFE: Crooked Roads Ranch is loaded with wildlife. Whitetail deer, turkey, dove, and pigs are plentiful. Waterfowl hunting on the creek can be good at times as well. Cowhouse creek is teeming with largemouth bass, catfish, and perch in the deeper stretches of water.
IMPROVEMENTS: Crooked Roads Ranch features a world-class gathering lodge and casita combo. It is apparent that top-tier quality was non-negotiable in the building of these structures.

The casitas are perfect for family reunions or hunters able to enjoy some privacy after a great day out on the ranch. The 1,800 SQ FT gathering lodge is heated and cooled with a full bathroom and is complete with spacious high ceilings and a first-rate kitchen area with an extended kitchen bar along with stainless steel appliances.
