30 plus acres of gorgeous mountain land in the Davis Mountains Resort. This property borders the 32,000 acre Nature Conservancy holdings in the Davis Mountains. There are 360 degree mountain views from the many building sites on this property. It ranges in elevation from 5785 feet above sea level to just below 6300 feet above sea level. From the highest points of the property, you can view the University of Texas McDonald Astronomical Observatory about 5 miles away. This property is moderately wooded with pinon pine, alligator juniper, Emory Oak and Gray Oak being the primary tree species. There are small cliffs and large rocks scattered throughout this land. Wildlife includes mule deer, whitetail deer, javelina, wild donkeys, mountain lions, and the occasional elk (elk hunts are conducted on the Nature Conservancy property). You have views of 7700 foot Paradise Mountain to the south and 7200 foot Blue Mountain to the east. The mountain this property is part of tops out at over 7000 feet. Hunting and the cutting down of trees are not permitted in the Resort (except for road building and cabin/house construction). Just about any type of living structure is permitted from shacks to mansions and both are found in the Resort, with most structures somewhere in between. There are no restrictions on camping but abandoned vehicles and trash dumps are not permitted.
The Resort covers over 10,000 acres and there are hundreds of acres of common land, including ponds, for the use of all landowners and their guests. The Resort boasts two churches and a campground. The country store is now closed but may open again in the near future. The climate here is very comfortable with average summer highs in the mid 80's and lows in the upper 50's and low 60's. Afternoon showers are very common in the summer monsoon season. Average January highs are about 60 degrees and lows near 30 degrees. This is a very nice place to be in summer when the rest of Texas is sweltering in 90 and 100 degree temperatures. Nearby Fort Davis is a sleepy little town with two state parks and a picturesque downtown area. The small city of Alpine is about 35 miles away.
Take Hwy 17 south from Interstate 10. About one mile south of Fort Davis, turn left on Hwy 166 and go about 10 miles to the entrance of the Davis Mountains Resort (DMR) where there is a large stone marker. Stay on this road until you enter the Resort which becomes Tomahawk Trail, the main road in the Resort. Take Tomahawk Trail for about 3 or 4 miles until it turns into Yellowknife Trail (Tomahawk Trail takes a 90 degree turn to the right). After crossing Limpia Creek take a quick left onto Limpia Canyon Trail and then a quick right onto Tejano Trail. After about half a mile, Tejano Trail veers off to the left and the road become Tejano Canyon. The property is the next to the last property on the left hand side. Four wheel drive is required to access most of the property although you can reach it with a passenger car. The front and left side of the property are partially fenced with four strands of barb wire. That is the southeastern boundary of the property. The northeastern boundary on the turnaround at the road has a large corner post.
