Welcome to Dripping Springs – the Gateway to the Hill Country! Located twenty-five miles west of Austin and an hour and a half from San Antonio, this little town offers abundant natural beauty and plenty of outdoor activity.

Outdoor Fun

Start with Dripping Spring’s most popular attraction- Hamilton Pool Preserve.  This natural wonder was created over 8000 years ago. A subterranean river collapsed creating the magnificent fifty foot waterfall and grotto enjoyed today.  The park limits the amount of people at the pool at one time. We recommend reservations, especially during the peak summer months.

Minutes from Hamilton Pool is Reimers Ranch.  Located on 2,427 acres bordering the Pedernales River, Reimers Ranch is an outdoor lover’s dream. It is best known for its world- renowned rock climbing faces and eighteen miles of mountain biking trails. Reimers Ranch also has plenty of shoreline. As a result, it is perfect for swimming, especially when Hamilton Pool is closed. Another feature of this beautiful park is its Observatory. You can see the rings of Saturn and the brightness of Jupiter. Additionally, your family can gaze at the craters of the moon. Finally, you can view star clusters on one of the two big telescopes available for your use. When you visit, you’ll disvover Dripping Springs is a member of the International Dark Sky Community (meaning little or no light pollution) staring deep into the cosmos is easy and always illuminating.

Food and Drink

Dripping Springs is also a great food and drink destination. For example, restaurants abound that both locals and tourists frequent. Additionally, you will find a number of wineries, distilleries, and breweries. As a result, many have made their home in the hills of Dripping Springs. You can tour places like the Bell Springs Winery, Deep Eddy Vodka, and Twisted X.  You can also take a trip out to the Texas Hill Country Olive Company. When you do, you can take a tour of the olive orchard and visit their tasting room. Next, you can stop at the bistro to sample the wares. Finally, you’ll find an impressive array of olive oil and olive oil infused products are for sale. Since the Central Texas soil composition is very similar to parts of Italy, the olives are exceptional and the finest in Texas.

When you visit Dripping Springs be prepared for a feast of the senses.  Food, fun, and outdoor exploration await.
