Gnarled Bend Ranch is a remarkable recreational property located on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River.  Most river properties have a little frontage; Gnarled Bend Ranch has over 3,400 feet of deep pockets of water loaded with all kinds of fish. The majority of the Clear Fork drains from the south and southwest, sothe water doesn't carry the red dirt like like the Salt Fork or the Brazos River before the dirt settles in nearby Possum Kingdom Lake.  This ranch is a kayakers dream with channels of water deep enough to travel even during dry times.  Outside of the river banks lies some of the largest gnarled mesquites in the area.  The northern portion has massive trees with light underbrush brush, while the southern part has been left to grow wild with thick cover and scattered live oak clusters.  Past the big, bull mesquites lies a post oak thicket with ample browse and an abundance of acorns.  Gnarled Bend Ranch has the ultimate habitat with ideal bedding grounds, abundant food supply, and a uniquely reliable water source all under one fence.  Utilities are available, and this land is accessible from both paved and rocked frontage.  This raw river property is a blank canvas to create your ultimate outdoor retreat on the most prolific river in Young County.
