Directions to Apache Passtures

Please do not approach the land from the south entrance to Apache Pass off of FM 908, as the only access is via a very narrow one-lane bridge, and we don’t want to block local traffic. It is especially difficult to navigate in a large vehicle, or when towing a trailer.
