Details

Since I moved here I keep hearing about Hamilton Pool and per request I figured it'd be fun to have a lazy Sunday here . So come join us on:

Sunday, June 9th, at 9:30 am at Hamilton Pool

In order to get to the swimming hole we will hike along the Hamilton Pool River Trail, which is about 1 mile long (about 10 minutes) . This path is a dual-track with minor elevation gains and is primarily used by hikers of all skill levels. Unfortunately no dogs are allowed in the park even if you follow the leash law.

Once at the pool, we will hang out for a few hours hanging out, playing frisbee/vball (I will bring these, though due to setup, we won't have a net) , and enjoying the last bit of summer.

What you should bring:

Comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting dirty/wet Water/Drinks/Snacks
Sunglasses Sunscreen Swimwear Beach Towel Lightweight Portable Cooler (optional)
Float/Tube (optional)
Note: No glass containers are allowed, but canned beer is allowed

GETTING THERE:

Hamilton Pool only has 75 parking spots available at the park. Once they are full they enforce a "one out, one in" policy for parking. Due to this the park has a tendency to fill up pretty quick (hence why we are leaving so early) and we are having two options for getting there:

1) Carpool to Hamilton Pool

For those interested in carpooling meet in the parking lot of Central Market (S. Lamar) near the big yellow Xterra . Please arrive no later then 9:40 AM as we will head out at 9:45AM towards Hamilton Pool. My cell is 512-578-9730 if you end up getting lost

Each person interested in carpooling will need to bring $6.00 CASH (please bring exact) which will go towards:

$10 per vehicle entrance fee to the park Gas for the driver Note: Those interested in driving please read our Carpooling Guidelines HERE (http://www.meetup.com/AustinExplorers/pages/Carpooling_Guidelines/). Those driving will not have to pay the $6.00 (which will be collected by the meetup organizer)

Note2: We will determine the drivers at the time of the event. If people want to carpool from up north, I encourage it , but please meet up at the Central Market prior to going to Hamilton Pool .

2) Meet us at Hamilton Pool

If you choose this option please try to arrive no later then 10:15AM , as . By 10:30AM I will have my cell phone turned off and will no longer be responding to text/calls

The physical address for Hamilton Pool is:

24300 Hamilton Pool Rd, Dripping Springs, TX

Note: Park entrance fee is $10 per vehicle, so I would encourage you to carpool if that's an option
