Dynamite Ranch is a beautiful, yet functional ranch with exceptional scenery. The unique topography on the eastern portion creates views of raw land for miles. The Palo Pinto Mountain Range sits just west of the property producing even more landscape views with dramatic sunsets. Approximately 90 acres were affected by the 2009 fires, and this portion is booming with native grasses. The existing fencing is in excellent condition with four cross-fenced pastures including a 24-acre field with an improved, drought-resistant grass (B-Dahl). A pond on the far west side of the property survived the recent droughts proving to be a reliable water source for cattle and local wildlife. The draw running thru the SE portion of the ranch has towering oaks and elms as well as a small waterfall. Another half-acre pond sits in the draw with significant run-off and could be enlarged with ease.  A couple of structures from an old explosives plant (for mining coal) sits on the land providing a glimpse of the ranch's rich history. This land has been owned and operated by the same family for the better part of a century with the love of proper management shining through.
