Road from Joe Chandlers guest ranch to Marathon
« on: February 17, 2015, 06:21:27 AM »
Does anyone know about a jeep road from around where Joe Chandlers used to be to Marathon?  I saw an article on it a few years ago, but I can't find it....

A jeep trail from the Pecos River to Marathon??? That would be one heck of a long drive.  Maybe I have the wrong Joe Chandler's ranch.  I am talking about the one that is now part of the Nature Conservancy's Independence Creek Preserve.  There used to be a road off of 349 south of Sheffield to it.  There might be a back way that's high clearance from Sheffield or from Pandale but I cannot imagine a road all the way from Marathon.  If you start out from Pandale at some point you will need to cross the Pecos river.

My mistake!  I don't know why I was thinking Joe Chandlers was South of Ft. Stockton.  Maybe now I can find my road........... I'll bet it went to Langtry!

Thanks for the help!
