One of the most picturesque locations in all of Texas (maybe even the world) is located right here in Dripping Springs, TX. A trip to the 200-acre
Hamilton Pool Preserve will have you feeling like you have been transported to another world rich with lush plants and trees, and an abundance of wildlife. The pool, a geological masterpiece
was formed by thousands of years of water erosion which created a collapsed grotto, the canyons and a staggering waterfall. Located 3/4 mile upstream from its confluence with the Pedernales River, Hamilton Creek spills out over limestone outcroppings to create a 50-foot waterfall
as it plunges into the head of a steep box canyon. Before you plan your trip to the pool, you must make an $11 online reservation. You will also pay $15 per vehicle in cash for an entrance permit when you arrive at the preserve. Nothing quite beats Hamilton Pool in the heat of the Texas
summer, but reservations do fill up fast, so make them before they’re gone.
