Most of the land is in large trees, including huge white oak and elm, post oak, hickory and cedars. The parts that are not wooded are in grass. ATV trails take you up and over the hills, through the trees and down to Dixon Creek. This creek is fed by natural springs and flows most of the year, except in the hot summer months when the springs retreat underground. It is additionally supplied from drainage ravines on both the subject property and the land across the creek. When Dixon Creek is up, you will see black bass swimming in it.
Across the creek on the property’s south border is the 3,600 acre Dixon Water Foundation, a conservation ranch. The county road dead ends just past the Lytle Ranch, so you have no through traffic except the neighboring ranch owners.
