      Blanco Shoals is completely undeveloped riparian with no defined trails. It contains high bluffs and shoals along the river, an outstanding example of the flood mitigation benefits of our natural areas. Gigantic Pecans, tall Cottonwoods and Sycamores and Anancuas grace the landscape. During summer months giant ragweed and Johnson Grass may overtake the property until mowed.

      The flat property makes for a comfortable stroll with hawks, woodpeckers and bluebirds among the species seen at this location.
