Hamilton Pool

Just 23 miles west of Austin, Texas is a breathtaking natural oasis emerging out of the desert dust and scrub grass. More than a century ago, the natural dome that once concealed the entire grotto underground collapsed and created what is now called Hamilton Pool.

Hamilton Pool is a natural spring formed in the limestone bedrock and fed by an underground river, which also feeds the small tributaries and lush flora surrounding the pool. The abundant freshwater has allowed a diverse population of trees and vegetation to emerge surrounding the pool, forming a beautiful protected nature preserve.
