Spanning approximately 7,986 acres in the Rolling Plains of West Texas, the Sugarloaf Ranch boasts a private oasis with grand views, surface water, flowing creeks, and a massive lodge built for entertainment. The ranch is about a 3-hour drive from DFW, located a short distance from Crowell, Texas and with direct access to Highway 70. Being in the heart of big ranch country in northwest Texas, Sugarloaf Ranch neighbors the historic 120,000-acre Triangle Ranch to the north, the vast 550,000-acre Waggoner Ranch, and the expansive 180,000-acre Pitchfork Ranch.
The Sugarloaf Ranch is approximately 80 miles from Wichita Falls, 160 miles from Amarillo, 155 miles from Lubbock, 195 miles from Oklahoma City, 200 miles from Fort Worth, and 220 miles from Dallas. Regional runways in Crowell (3,200') and Vernon (5,100') offer convenient access for those who prefer to fly.
The Sugarloaf is bordered to the east by the high-fenced, 1,500-acre Six Mile Hill Ranch and to the north by the 11,500-acre US Army Corps of Engineers land, resulting in extremely low hunting pressure that has allowed the ranch to be inhabited by a considerable population of mule and white-tailed deer. Recent dove and quail hunts have yielded impressive results, while other wildlife species such as turkey, ducks, hogs, and coyotes also call the ranch home. The diverse native vegetation sustains this rich wildlife ecosystem, fostering a harmonious balance.
