“A short hike down a little canyon to one heck of a Hill Country gem.”— Caleb Joyce
Family Friendly A short hike and shallow beach area make it ideal for anyone old enough to hike on stable feet.
This section is a flat and simple hike. Once at the pool, you can go left or right to traverse the rim of the pool. If you go right, you'll head through the drainage area, up around the falls, and around the backside of the old sunken dome. Just before you leave the overhanging sinkhole, you'll see a little fern and mossy section where water seeps out of the limestone. After that, you're on the beach area, perfect for sunning, picnicking, and enjoying the view.
