There is a $10 entrance fee to the parks per car but that will be good for both parks. The plan is to visit Hamilton Pool first as it opens to avoid the crowds. We'll do the ~1/4 mile hike and sight see the pool. We then proceed to Pace Bend to start the main hike by ~11AM hopefully. People can, of course, stay at Hamilton Pool if they wish or come back after the Pace Bend hike to swim if possible and not crowded. But there should be plenty of places to go into the water in Pace Bend or when we come back to Pedrenales.

Parking & Meeting Point: Most of us will be camping and so we will probably convoy from Pedrenales to Hamilton Pool. After Hamilton Pool we head to Pace Bend at 2805 Pace Bend Rd North,Spicewood, TX. In Pace Bend we will park and start the hike as indicated at the red arrow in the map below.
