Pedernales Falls is located 30 miles West of Austin and only a quarter mile walk from the parking lot. You can head a little further down river if you're looking to take a dip.

Pedernales Falls drops 50 feet in elevation over 3000 feet of titled, layered steps of limestone along the Pedernales River in Blanco County. In order to reach the falls you must enter Pedernales Falls State Park and follow the park road until the very end. There you'll find a parking lot and it's only about a quarter of a mile walk to the falls. If you want to do a bit more exploring of the area, I suggest wearing hiking shoes because it's rocky, slippery, and some places are covered with shrubs. If you're looking to just relax, there is a small beach area where you can set out your towel, bring a cooler, and soak up some rays.

Pedernales Falls

Visited the park a day after it rained and was rewarded with heavy falls and a beautifully lush forest. It’s a pretty small park so I hiked a lot of the day but it feels like you stay in a contained area. The falls are beautiful and easy to get to. Incredible Geological beauty is displayed among the many pools that cascade over each other!

Dry is Great Too

Went this weekend and the falls were non-existing level of really dry. Made for some excellent rock climbing and exploring. The swimming section is really lovely, lots of spots to carve out a private area.

A Great Place For A Day Trip

Visited this Hill Country Park today, and I really enjoyed it! I would recommend going after some rainfall though so you can really enjoy the falls. It was very dry today which was great for hiking, but not for cooling off by the water.
