A Big Bend Ranching example from the early 1900's
Great family hike.
Nice historic site! Working windmill and pecans
Great glimpse of the past here. Found pecans from the non-native trees planted by the Nails - tasty.
Historic site with a windmill and pump still in operation. It includes some old remnants of an adobe house and a few shaded areas. A great place to take youngsters.
A good example of life in the Big Bend back in the 1920's Sam Nail built his home with little outside help. The trail is only about 1/4 mile, and is very easy.
