We are 37 miles up FM 170 from Presidio, Texas. FM 170 rises and falls, twists and turns along the Rio Grande. It's austere beauty can be captivating -- but please take care! This part of Presidio County is open range, and it is not uncommon to crest a hill and find an unconcerned cow in the road! Please plan on over an hour to reach Ruidosa, plus another half hour on Hot Springs Road, the gravel road that takes you the final 7 miles up from FM170 to the springs. The road is a bit rough, but high clearance or 4WD is not necessary.
