Homer Wilson Blue Creek Ranch Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Homer Wilson Blue Creek Ranch was the heart of Homer Wilson’s ranching operations in the Chisos Mountains before the park was established in the 1940s. The house was a line camp lived in for many years by Wilson’s foreman, Lott Felts. The house lies in the bottom of Blue Creek Canyon, a major drainage on the southwestern side of the Chisos Mountains. The house can be seen from above, from the start of the trail right by the parking lot.

Homer Wilson’s line camp still stands in the bottom of Blue Creek Canyon. The well-used trail descends into the canyon on an old road with a short, moderate grade. It then crosses the relatively flat canyon bottom to the house. The native stone structure is in relatively good repair, although the window glass is missing. Thick walls, a flagstone floor, a big fireplace, and a wood viga-and-cane ceiling givea solid, homey feel to the house."
