About Cherry Springs Ranch: Cherry Springs Ranch, once operated by famous Texan folklorist J. Frank Dobie, is an approximately 1040-acre working ranch located in the Texas Hill Country. The ranch is primarily used for wildlife management and contains many interesting geological features including dinosaur tracks and a beautiful waterfall. The pending conservation easement on Cherry Springs Ranch will permanently ensure that its water, wildlife, scenic views, and other resources remain intact and healthy for the benefit of millions of Texans forever.
