Spanish Oaks Ranch is surrounded by large ranches to the North and West. It is NOT surrounded by smaller tracts of land, making it much more private! Which leads to lower traffic and use on the surrounding properties. This property is not a part of Fisher Peak Ranch, but you do have to drive though it to get here. That Ranch has a Road Association, and they do road maintenance when required. Fisher Peak Ranch subdivision is gated. So the owners here, have decided to pay into the Road Association to keep access roads in good condition. A small price to pay for good roads. You will need to get a updated monthly gate code to enter this property through Fisher Peak Ranch for access. The fee to use that electric gate and pay for road maintenance is $350 per year. Spanish Oaks Ranch would also be a great place to ride ATV’s and build new trails, as the topography is not very steep throughout most of the property. All subdivision access roads are private, and do not offer public access without being a landowner or having permission to enter.
