A hidden beauty that not many people know of. Hamilton Pool is about a 30 minute drive from South Austin. It gives you a good view of the Hill Country experience while you drive there. Watch out as they have a limited parking space, its usually about 50 cars and then its one out one in. So plan well in advance and early during the day. Also be aware that they may close when there was a heavy rain the previous night as the trails will get soggy.
Even on normal days the trails are unpaved and not stroller friendly. If you are planning with infants mind the fact that you might have to carry them all through the hike. About 1.5 miles from the parking lot the trail divides. On one trail you can go and meet the river. Fishing is the most common activity there. The other leads you to a waterfall - a unique waterfall wher you can hike behind where it falls. Even a novice photographer can capture the moment. Swimming is a common sport here in this pool.
You do not have any food / drink counter available so pack you picnic table food / beverage.
