Take scenic Hwy 16 north out of Bandera. You will be traveling through the Medina River Valley crossing this beautiful river several times as it meanders through the hills. Approximately 8 miles out of town, you will come to what the locals refer to as the “Tree Tunnel” where hundred year old live oak trees engulf the highway. Proceed on to the town of Medina, 13.5 miles from Bandera. Medina is home to the Texas International Apple Festival – and a great place to get one of the best apple turnovers in the world. Continue north out of Medina approximately 6 miles where the Medina Children’s Home is your next landmark. Koyote Ranch Hill Country is 1.8 miles north of Medina Children’s Home on the west side of Hwy 16.
