Waterfall at Pedernales Falls State Park

Pedernales Falls State Park

Video Presentation of Pedernales Falls State Park

A clear, spring-fed river flowing down gently sloping limestone creates the lovely "falls." While the first three miles, including the falls, are closed to swimming, wading and tubing, other areas of this beautiful river are open to water play. Other spots beckon anglers, while trails through the tree-shaded hills pull bird-watchers and hikers away from the water. The park is home to the endangered golden-cheeked warbler in the spring and the indigenous rufous-crowned sparrow year-round. Birdwatchers can seclude themselves in a covered viewing and photography blind with feeders and drip bath.
