Hike Pedernales Falls

We will (optionally) meet for car pooling at the Planet Fitness parking lot (GPS[masked],[masked]) next to Jim's Restaurant (7101 W Highway 71).  Be there at 7:30 to sort out drivers/passengers so that we can leave there by 7:45.

It will take 40-45 minutes to go from there to Pedernales Park (290 to Rt onto Ranch Road 3232 into the park gate).  Feel free to go directly and meet us at the park entrance at 8:30.

Entrance fee is $5 per day, per person.  We will meet at the gate area and proceed by car to the falls area.  Hike will be 2.5-3 hours.We can talk of many things - should we get rid of the penny? would you have survived with Ernest Shackleton?, what kind of wearable electronics do you want?

Those who want lunch can decide on a place to meet for lunch in Dripping Springs on the way back.

Dogs welcome I will bring Stokie.  Wear good shoes, bring water for you and any pup you bring. Try to be on time - as we will generally leave both the car pool location and the park entrance at the stated time.  If you are running late - call my cell.

    I'm not going to make it. Watched the weather when I should have been sleeping.

    Some unforeseen family obligations have come up. I might not make it. Sorry folks.

    Might not make it after all due to extreme time and weather. Will see how I feel at "6:30" tomorrow morning.

    I'm planning on still going, although I'll take a look at the radar to be sure it's clearing up in the AM.

    Josephine and i will be at the carpool place at 7:30am unless it's actively raining when waking up.

    March 9, 2013

  • Brian G.

    BTW, the radar at KEYE/KXAN shows that the storms should be done at Pedernales around 6am or so and out of Austin around 8am.

    I think I'm going to sleep in and miss the rain. Have fun guys!

    I thought I'd be able to make this but my schedule changed. Hope everyone has a great time.

    Just a reminder that tonight is daylight-savings, which means meeting at 7:30 at Jim's really means meeting at 6:30 according to one's body.... I will plan on meeting y'all at the park at the entrance around 8:30 (7:30 by my body).

    Maybe see you at short hikes Saturday if weather permits and in town. Have a good hike.

    March 8, 2013

  • Michele

    Cool. If its crummy weather I might bail. Get it...bail. Oh boy that'd be a lot of rain.

    March 7, 2013

  • Mary E.

    I'm good. See you then!

    Relatives just called and will be in town this weekend. Funny that we didn't have this many visitors in March when we lived in WI.

    March 7, 2013

  • Dave

    OK - sorry for not knowing, but as of 4 PM today I got final confirmation that I do not have to be at work Sunday morning. My inclination is to leave it the original time as there is at least one person will bail out if it is later - anybody have problems with that - sorry the monkey wrench

    March 7, 2013

  • Dave

    Don't know yet, but I may have to bail out on this due to an unforeseen work thing (Sunday 5-9 am IT maintenance window), don't know yet but can anyone else lead this if I do?

    March 5, 2013

    • Michele

      It's not hot. Let's just go later so you can join. Sounds like we could meet at the park at 10:30-ish. Or we can postpone this and do something in town.

      Hope Perdernales works...late is even good. Would like to know as soon as possible. Comi.g from San Antonio and if Sunday is cancelled will go back to Saturday shorter hikes.

      March 6, 2013

  • David T.

    I have some time constraints for Sunday and will catch up with the group another day.

    March 6, 2013

  • Laura S.

    My selfish request is bring it closer to home if we start later. I have a standing Sunday afternoon meeting at 2 making a Pedernales late start difficult. But that's my situation. No matter what, I'll catch up another week. Love the hikes!

    March 5, 2013

  • David

    I won't complain about starting later

    March 5, 2013

  • Mary E.

    I am fine with starting a bit later. Dave can you confirm?

    March 5, 2013

  • John A.

    We live toward Hamilton Pool, so we will meet everyone there. Where is the rendezvous site?

    March 4, 2013

    • Dave

      in the past we have met by the park hq, but we will be parking in the lot closest to the falls to hike upstream from there

      March 5, 2013

  • Judi

    Approx how many miles is the hike and what level?

    March 4, 2013

    • Dave

      Not sure, usually define it in hours and then pace is partially determined by the group

    i have a state park pass

    March 5, 2013

  • Anonymous

    When I got my state park pass, I was told that all in my car could enter for free. Not absolutely sure if it's true, but am happy to take 3 more in my car at the carpool place.

    March 4, 2013

    Hot Diggity! I'm in.
