Comal County Real Estate 

The location of Comal County is up on the Edwards Plateau, in the State of Texas.  It lies between the Balcones Escarpment and the Blackland Prairies.   New Braunfels is the county seat and the largest city in the county.  Herein lies a little over 550 square miles of the beautiful hill country, and prairie lands. There are hills of grasslands and croplands along the eastern quarter, near the Balcones Escarpment.  The lands of this area are perfectly suited for crops and farming.   Elevations here range from 600 to about 750 feet above sea level.  Three-fourths of the northwestern quarter of the county has above sea elevations of 750 feet to 1500 feet.  These sections of land have been found best for grazing areas.  Within the Hill Country areas, there are fewer grasses than that of the prairie lands.  Live oaks, Ashe juniper, and mesquite do well here.  Industries within the county include the materials construction sector, because of the gravel, sand, and limestone available. The annual rainfall has averaged approximately 33 inches a year, with growing seasons being about 265 days.  Temperatures can range from the 40s in winter to high 90s in summer.  Wildlife within the county includes deer, coyotes, bobcats, ringtail cats, turkeys, rabbits, doves, skunks, and squirrels.  Some exotic animals have been introduced to the areas by local ranchers as well.  These include sika and axis deer, and Barbados sheep.

The southwest boundary of Comal County is Cibolo Creek.  Cibolo Creek flows into the San Antonio River.  Canyon Lake and the Guadalupe River are the drainage for the central hill regions and the valleys as well.    There are many streams east and north that flows northward, which run into the Blanco River, which is in Hays County.  The main groundwater supply for Comal County is the Edwards Aquifer.

From the earliest times of settlement to the area, the county was a mix of ranches and farmlands.  Currently, farms and ranches still play a large roll in the economy.  There are many available ranchland and farmland properties in the county.  Because of the location of the county, it is a tourist stop. It is within the corridor between San Antonio and the Austin areas, along highway 35.  Tourism is a key industry in the area and has created an influx of population growth.  In the 1980s just under 90 subdivisions were created along the shores and the various hills of Lake Canyon.

The Natural Bridge Cavern is said to be the largest cavern known in the State of Texas.  Discovery of the Cavern occurred in March of 1960.   The name originated because of the 60ft slab bridge, made of natural limestone located near the entrance to the Cavern. During the excavation and development of the cavern, objects were dated to 5000 B.C.. Arrowheads, Spearheads, were found along with the jawbone of an extinct grizzly bear. The bones of the grizzly were believed to be over 8000 years old.  Within the Cavern are rooms.  One named the Hall of Mountain Kings has a ceiling of over 100 feet.  The Natural Bridge Caverns is a discovery place for the whole family and anyone who enjoys outdoor adventures.  Canopy Challenge zip lines are another section of the discovery center.  There is also a Mining Company on site and a Labyrinth Maze.
