The Running River Ranch is located off Friedrich Road and there are two nameless creeks plus the Pedernales River running through it. The first creek is approximately 600 and spring fed with a concrete crossing on both ends. The second creek meanders across the ranch, approximately 1900 - with rock formations, grassy banks and spring fed trickling brooks. This creek winds through a serene area of lush native grasses accompanied with Elm, Pecan, and other variety of trees.

Ranch topography is rolling to hilly, with elevation ranging from 1900 to 2000 feet. There are native pastures with Live Oak, Post Oak, Spanish Oak, Hackberry, Pecan, Elm, Shin Oak, Persimmon, Agarita and native grass that covers most of the ranch. There is a 40+/- acre Coastal Bermuda pasture. The cedar has been cleared throughout most of the ranch which includes some open native pasture areas as well.
