H.A.T.s _17_2013 Pace Bend Park(+Hamilton Pool) ~9mi/400ft

  • May 11, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

The Pace Bend Hike: This is  a  counter clockwise loop through a subset of trails for this park.    For the route map: CLICK HERE

    You can swim in the river at Hamilton, and you can still go to the actual pool and water falls. The falls are the best they've been in years because of the rain.

    If you guys are starving after the hike check this place out...Lake Point Cafe. We ended up going there. It is right by the Hamilton Pool turnoff by three Shell gas station. Pizza and gyros were amazing. He said he can accommodate a big group if you ate sharing pizzas our something. The Mediterranean salad and pizza was amazing!
