GETTING TO THE RANCH
Ten Bits Ranch is easily reached via North County Road just 2.2 miles west of Texas State Highway 118, 68 miles south of Alpine, Texas. North County Road intersects Hwy 118 approximately 1 mile south of the Longhorn Ranch Motel along with Tivo’s Restaurant. Watch for the Longhorn Ranch Motel sign as you travel south from Alpine. Although a public throughfare, North County Road is unpaved but is regularly maintained and will provide access to most any vehicle.
If you are driving North on Hwy. 118 from the Big Bend West Park entrance or from Highway 170 from Presidio/Lajitas, go approximately 15 miles North on Hwy. 118 from the intersection of Hwy. 170 (look for the blue Adopt-a-Highway trash clean up sign sponsored by Ten Bits Ranch while going up a large hill), 2 miles past that sign in North County Road on your left-hand side. If you pass the Longhorn Ranch Motel/Tivo’s Restaurant they you have gone too far and need to turn around.
For travelers wishing to incorporate commercial air travel in their plans, the nearest airports are located in El Paso ( a 4 hour drive to the Ranch) or Midland/Odessa (a 3 hour drive to the Ranch). Automobile rentals are available in most of the larger towns and in Alpine at Alpine Auto Rentals. The Big Bend is remote, distances are great and the traffic is light, so enjoy the views!
