General Information About Rocky Hill Ranch
Grey and Pam Hill created Rocky Hill Ranch in 1993 and opened it up to mountain bikers and other trail users. It soon became known as one of the first and best mountain bike ranches in Texas. The Hills left ranch operations to a number of lease-holders over the years. After starting and operating a successful business on the Texas coast they have headed for the highlands and are actively running Rocky Hill Ranch again.
Current updates at the ranch include:
Water Stations returned to service on the trails. (NOW IN PLACE)
The cafe and saloon has been de-constructed and a new covered pavilion with original slab has been resurrected in its place.
Pets on leash only. Horses are not allowed at Rocky Hill Ranch.
Helmets when biking are ALWAYS required.
