Pedernales Falls & Hamilton Pool
Pedernales Falls aren't really much of a waterfall, but rather where the Pedernales River flows over slabs of limestone. Most people, like us, just visit the falls at the northern edge of the park, but there is also a large network of hiking trails and a separate section of the river downstream of the falls open to swimming and tubing.

We didn't have long at the breweries because we wanted to make it back to Hamilton Pool to get in line before it closed for the day. We arrived in line sometime between 3:30 and 4:00 and by 4:10 we had make the short hike down into the valley where the pool is located. The pool is a popular swimming spot, and with temperatures in the high 70s a lot of people were swimming in the near 60-degree water. The waterfall from the cliff above didn't have much water flowing, but it was still a cool place to visit for the better part of an hour.
