The view to the north across the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos includes a tall ridge with sheer red dirt bluffs. Ranch roads and ATV trails provide good access across the property.

Brush species include: mesquite, lotebush, redberry cedar, littleleaf sumac, skunkfoot sumac, hackberry, catclaw acaia, ephedra, feathered dalia, tashillo and pricklypear cactus along with a few small shinnery oak mottes.
