A Piece of Texas History –
Settled in 1855

The Madla Ranch was settled in 1855. Mateo and Constantine Madla came over from Poland by ship and made their way to Texas. They settled here in the beautiful hill country of Helotes and we’re proud that seven generations have resided on the ranch still to this day.

Why Ziplining?

In 2012 the Madla family vacationed in Colorado and experienced Ziplining for the first time and enjoyed it so much that they returned home, looked at the hills and valleys here and said “We can do this!” Ralph and Rodney had a vision. This vision was to build a zipline and give folks an opportunity to experience the scenic Texas Hill Country.

In 2014 we opened the Zipline course to the public and have continued to add to the Ranch activities. In 2020 our Disc Golf Course featuring 18 baskets that are placed around the ranch with historical markers that share some of our family’s history. In 2022 the Hill Country Keg became the center piece of family fun at the Ranch. Nested under our centuries old heritage oak trees, at “The Keg” you can enjoy your favorite beverage and relax with friends listening to live music.
