This is a living land museum on 1200 acres of open space along the banks of the Medina River on the far south side of San Antonio preserving, maintaining and interpreting 10,000 years of continual human habitation.  Current property access is by appointment only and with Entry or Special Use Permit.  The property has 18 miles on trails that are shared by equestrians, bikers and hikers.  The horses have the ROW!
