Hamilton Pool

With the randomness that is Texas weather, you can’t really predict what the weather will be like anymore. What you can do is plan in advance things to do, once the weather starts being more consistent. Once spring officially decides to come and stay. Here is one idea. Great way to spend a day, get some sun, and see one of Austin’s greatest sights.

Hamilton Pool is a preserve that foucses on habitat protection and restoration. There are several activities you can do there like hike, swim and enjoy the environment.

Hamilton Pool has a 45-foot water fall which creates a great swimming hole. While there is no concession stand, you can bring in a picnic and enjoy the atmosphere.

It is open from 9 to 5:30 daily, and the only charge is a $8.00 per vehicle entrance charge. Going from campus’ Chipotle: View Larger Map

  1. Wow! I’ve been in Austin for 4 years and I’ve never heard about this place! I will have to go now! That is a great picture and looks like a blast!

  2. This place looks absolutely beautiful. I’m new to town, and everyone has been suggesting Barton Springs for the hot weather, but no one has mentioned Hamilton Pool – I can’t wait to try it. Maybe it’s a bit of a well kept Austin secret!

  3. My brother mentioned it once, but I still haven’t gone. It does look amazing!!!

  4. I’ve heard so much about Hamilton Pool but never knew where it was or that it’s so cheap. Thanks for all the info.. great post!

  5. I had never heard of Hamilton Pool before and it looks gorgeous! Hope the weather gets better so that we can enjoy it soon, thanks!

  6. Wow, what an amazing picture!!! I have been to Hamilton Pool and it is a really fun outing from Austin. There are also other parks and rivers around the area that are great for hiking, relaxing, and swimming. We are fortunate to live by such beautiful water.
