We went on a cool day and had no problem parking. It was a 15 minute walk mostly downhill and all the leaves were changing color. The scenery even walking up to it was stunning. We finally got the pool and could have sat there...More

Our local hosts had never been and suggested we all visit this place based on word-of-mouth. There was a ‘little’ hike to the Perdernales river and then the Pool. Be warned that the little hike is moderately difficult but the greatest surprise. The narrow single...More

Get there early when it first opens! We went mid-October when Nature’s colors were still green with hints of gold and red! Saw some fossils too. The trail from the lot is not that steep, but the trail between the Pool to the River is...More

Great Place if you can get in when the water is open. They now also require reservations so be sure to check far in Advance as planning is more critical now

A pleasant surprise. I thought it was going to be a total tourist cheesy thing to do but I was surprised. The walk to the river and pool was beautiful, great mild hike / walk . It was a great couples activity. No crowds when...More

We stopped at the pool on our way to Waco. The trail to the pool was steep and rocky but it was worth the time to stop and see. The trail runs behind the overhang making for very scenic photos.

Paid a visit here on a sunny October afternoon. Fairly steep descent on rocks and gravel but well worth it. The pool is stunningly beautiful and the walkway to the river (opposite direction to the pool) is so tranquil and scenic. Fantastic photo opportunities and...More

Semi strenuous walk but worth it. Don’t carry much as tight spaces but beautiful example of God’s beauty and gifts.

Didn't think we'd find something so interesting anywhere near the road which brought us there. Getting there early on a weekday worked well because there aren't too many parking spaces, and visitation is limited to a certain number of people. The walk to the pool...More

It’s a state park. I don’t believe they take reservations. First come, first served. If you are going at this time of year there most likely won’t be many people there. Good luck and enjoy!
