Pedernales Falls Is A Blue-Green Oasis Tucked Away In The Texas Hill Country
If we had to pick one region of Texas that gives visitors the most “bang for their buck,” so to speak, it would undoubtedly be the Hill Country. From all-day floats on the river to rugged canyon landscapes, this area truly has it all. Pedernales Falls State Park is one Central Texas destination that belongs on your bucket list, with its pristine waters, ancient rock formations, and breathtaking panoramic views.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
As is the case with most bodies of water in Central Texas, flash flooding can occur in a matter of minutes. Keep a watchful eye on the water level, and leave the river area immediately if it starts to rise. Visit the park’s website or Facebook page to learn more.
