Land & Water
Indian Creek Ranch has been in the family since the late 1800s and is located near the Divide area of Kerr County which is the delineation between the Colorado and Guadalupe River watersheds. The property is primarily an Oak-Juniper woodland with impressive topography changes ranging from 2,228 ft atop Red Hill, the highest named point in Kerr County, to 2,040 ft along the creek channel near the SW corner of the tract. Multiple ridges and plateaus offer picturesque long-range views of the surrounding Hill Country that could serve as great homesites. This varied topography would also provide unique opportunities for hiking, biking, and ATV/ UTV trails. Below these ridges and plateaus are several grasslands with deep soils. The runoff from the high ground feeds into a major tributary to Indian Creek.

As one follows these rock-lined creek beds, you’ll find multiple large grottos that have nearly vertical limestone walls, one of which is over 20 ft tall with gravel-lined basins beneath it. One can only imagine what these grottos can look like during wet periods with water cascading off the wall down into the pools. From the bottom of the grottos, one will find numerous caves and overhangs in addition to classic tree species such as Escarpment Black Cherry, Lacey Oak, and Black Walnut. The top side of these grottos were likely utilized by early Native Americans as campsites due to elevation and proximity to water. Evidence of this use was seen by casual observation of broken points, scrapers, and flakes. These unique geologic features are a must see!
