Mission and Vision

While striving to preserve the Hill Country feel, the Fair Oaks Ranch Homeowner’s Association (FORHA) is committed to maintaining and growing our Parks and Trails system for its members. Green space, including parks and trails, preserve ecosystems, provide opportunities to increase physical activity, and enhance our community and quality of life.

FORHA aims to provide the Parks with recreational amenities that families can enjoy now and in the future. Our Trails, while well marked, remain in a close to natural state allowing hiking, biking and horseback riding similar to the original Ranch.


(Open during daylight hours only)

The city of Fair Oaks Ranch, once a working ranch, has maintained its rolling hills, tree lined creeks and valleys synonymous with the beautiful Texas Hill County. FORHA hopes members will use and enjoy the Parks and Trails along with the Hill Country experience.
