Grandkids walked thru a gorge, greatly enjoyed the adventure. Swam in the River and cooled off. The Observatory was not open yet, sorry we missed out. Hope to return.

It was quite a hike to the beach and back;however, there were few people there and very relaxing. The water felt great, and it was clean. It’s $10 to get in (per car), and they accept cash only.

I love this place! It is a hidden gem just outside Austin. It's never too crowded, has beautiful views and wonderful trails and the Perdenales River runs right through it. You can fish, swim, hike, walk, climb, ride bikes, ride horses, etc.

Hike the trails thru the woods or the trails along the river. By yourself, as a couple or with your family it's a fun place to visit and explore. If your into rock climbing, bring your gear. In the Summer it can be a hot...More

My wife and I went on a Friday. There were maybe 3 other groups of people. You have alot of river front to choose from. Had a picnic and a swim. No shade so bring a shelter to get out of the sun.

We just did the short trail along the Pedernales River, however, there is rock climbing, various hiking trails, biking, and fishing available too. It was a nice view of the Pedernales River from above and provides informative stories of the river.

If you visit, dogs MUST be on a leash for safety. Drownings have happened here in recent times. Just too many people and loose dogs around rock climbing areas. Last time I went, the park ranger had to hunt down two people whose dogs were...More

Yes. There is a hike down to the water, but it has great access. It has a beach type shore. It would be a great place to take some shade and spend the day.
