The first step in considering the expansion was a survey of the property, locating existing benchmarks and property corners. GPS locations were recorded and t-posts installed at the corners of unfenced segments of the property and the resulting information used to create a new map of the property, see below.

A gate and trail now lead from the interior fence along the old railroad to the SE corner of the property. Guests may now hike or ride to within a mile of the large outcrops at the base of the Peloncillo mountains without leaving the estate.
