Immediately past the 5th (Friedrich Crossing-approximately 5.9 miles from the Y-intersection in Hunt) on the right side of the road where the guardrail ends is the entrance to the Patio Ranch. It is a wrought iron gate with “Stumberg Patio Ranch” in large black metal letters on the gate. The gate is bounded by three large stone pillars about 10’ tall. (Click the photo to see the whole gate.)
