Located just 1.5 miles down the road from Ranch 3232, Pedernales Falls State Park is a Hill Country gem among the many great Texas State Parks. The namesake Pedernales River meanders through the park on its way to the mighty Colorado River, contributing to the area’s broad appeal to campers, bikers, hikers, kayakers, swimmers, and more.
Texas Parks and Wildlife describes the park in their article entitled Take Me to the River. Here’s a short excerpt that sets the stage for what’s in store for you with a visit:
“Flowing over and around huge slabs of limestone, the Pedernales River can be turbulent. But most often it is tranquil, and a great place to relax and recharge. We are just 30 miles west of Austin. Come over for an afternoon swim or hike, or load up your gear for an overnight adventure. The river awaits!”
