Terrain:

The Sunrise Ranch is a one of a kind North Texas recreational ranch loaded with beautiful views, outstanding hunting and fishing, and endless opportunities for outdoor activities. Elevation changes on the Sunrise Ranch range in excess of 150 feet, with several vantage points offering towering views of the lake, timber lined hillsides, and bottomland below. Colorful massive groves and motts of post oak trees primarily cover the hillsides and rougher terrain of the property, while the rollling cleared areas and lush bottomland draws have Coastal Bermuda and other mixed grasses growing throughout. One of the best and most important features of the ranch is the shoreline frontage and access to a 90 +/- acre Soil Conservation Service Reservoir that is loaded with fish and waterfowl. Huge catfish weighing up to 80 POUNDS have been recently caught! The lake's inlet drainage channels extend far into the interior of the ranch providing excellent fishing, waterfowl hunting, and fresh water for wildlife and livestock. Besides the lake, Sunrise Ranch also has six nice ponds scattered across the property, including some that are stocked with largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, bluegill, and brim. These ponds range from small clear pools of water to larger bodies of water approximately 2 acres in size. Five of the six ponds hold water year round, offer excellent waterfowl hunting in the colder months, and are frequently visited by all sorts of wildlife. An excellent interior road system makes travelling the entire ranch by vehicle possible and the most common used roads have been heavily graveled providing easy wet weather access even in a low profile vehicle. The lodge sits on one of the highest points of the ranch at the end of a winding gravel lane approximately one mile from the entrance. Views are fabulous from the main road from the entrance to the lodge including sculpted large oak trees similar to a city park setting, commonly seen groups of wildlife grazing, and beautiful natural rock features. Part of the ranch's natural beauty are many huge outcroppings of rock and boulders, including some that have formed natural tunnels and cave areas. It nearly looks as if they were placed there intentionally by the landowner, but that would be impossible since some of these rocks are as big as a school bus in size. Ancient stone fences and boundaries are found in several areas of the ranch showing signs of hard work and progress with the land even from many years ago. There are numerous established hiking and four-wheeling trails that traverse the dense woods to viewpoints overlooking the countryside and also leading to fishing holes on the ranch. Sunrise ranch is also well equipped for livestock operations such as a cow/calf operation or horseback riding. Excellent facilities are in place for working cattle and some stalls are covered for horses or sheltering sick cattle. With so many wonderful attributes in one property, the Sunrise Ranch is loaded with opportunities and ready to be enjoyed.
