The C5 Ranch is located in Southeast Llano County at the foot of the Riley Mountains nestled amongst the Sandy and Honey Creek watersheds. The C5 is rich in Llano County history having been the former site of Click, TX named after early Llano Co.unty settler Malachi Click and his family. Remnants of the former town can still be seen.
The ranch features lengthy portions of both the Spring and Barnett Branches whose headwaters originate a short distance upstream in the Riley Mountains. These wet-weather creeks generate an enormous amount of run-off from the mountains during rainfall and have been cleared to reveal the home to hundreds of beautiful century-old oaks.
Multiple tanks are present throughout the ranch, the largest of which is a 10 acre 20 feet deep lake when full. The lake is full of bass, and has been the focal point for many family fishing trips throughout the years with the Grandkids.
Beautiful uninterrupted 360 degree vistas can be seen from the apex of the ranch. Devil’s Toenail, Lucky Mountain, the Packsaddle Mountains and the Sandy Creek Valley to name a few are all just a head turn away.
Native vegetation for the area includes oaks, elms, mesquite, cedar, prickly pear, bee brush, tasajillo, plus the many different types of beautiful Hill Country flora. Ranch wildlife includes whitetail, turkey, hogs, dove, Aoudad, and other exotics including the occasional Elk or Axis.
Much thought and care has been taken in transforming and developing this spectacular ranch into the perfect combination of cattle ranch, recreation, and hunting. Nearly 10 miles of new perimeter and cross fencing has been constructed to create 16 pastures and hundreds of acres of careful clearing lends itself to new grassland and road creation.
Five water wells, 15 cisterns, and several miles of piped-underground water allow for an abundant amount of water in every section of this ranch for livestock and wildlife. In addition to the hundreds of acres of improved grasses and fields, revival of original cattle pens and storage barns, the C5 also boasts an updated and restored headquarters featuring all the comforts you’d expect and more.
The C5 is located approximately 55 miles from Austin, 19 miles from Llano, and 12 miles from Horseshoe Bay. An owner is only minutes from enjoying the highland lake activities from the ranch. Baylor Scott & White Marble Falls and Horseshoe Bay airport are just a short drive away.
If you’ve been searching for the perfect piece of Texas Hill Country basked in an area of history and lore, the C5 Ranch merits your attention.
