Situated just between the Edwards Plateau and true West Texas, the acreage at Eaton Hill is truly a living classroom in which to study the botany and fauna of both the Texas Hill Country and the Chihuahuan Desert. More than 2 miles of hiking trails meander through the 37 acre property and vary from the rocky outcrops of Agave Ridge to the densely wooded and seemingly secret corridors of Zed's Cut.
