Only 8 miles southwest of Quitaque, Texas, the Pole Canyon Ranch is accessible yet remote from the busy outside world. Pole Canyon Ranch is managed by Phil and Lynnette Barefield. The ranch was established in 1911 by Lynnette's grandfather, Jim Taylor. He and his brother rode their horses into this area in December of 1910 in search of land. The ranch is now part of the Walter Taylor Estate and encompasses about 6,000 acres of beautiful canyon lands with running water in several of the spring-fed creeks. Abundant game and beautiful scenery make each excursion a memorable adventure.
DIRECTIONS: From Quitaque, TX - 4 miles south on FM 1065 - west (right) on FM 689 for 4 miles - cattle guard on right with sign - 1/4 mile to parking areas. (Note: we will have an identifying sign at the cattle guard.)
