Along the way, your guide will pause with prompts to appreciate one’s surroundings and take in the beauty of the canyon.
After a 15-minute walk, guests will reach the head of the canyon where water falls along a stunning 40-foot cliff that stands replenishing an emerald pool below, with a 1-chamber room cave.
Refresh yourself, by listening to the sounds in the majestic grotto area with a moment of silence and reflection. You will be left with an experience of a lifetime.
This experience invites visitors on an otherworldly journey hiking from a Live Oak/Ashe Juniper Savannah, through a limestone crevice into the Riparian Woodland of a cool sheltered canyon. This canyon was created over 100,000 years ago by the collapse of an immense limestone cave. At the head of the canyon, a sparkling waterfall drips 40 feet over fern-covered travertine columns into a vivid emerald pool. Visitors are guided behind the artesian spring-fed waterfall into a one-chamber limestone cave, examining cave formations and lush plant life seen in few other places in Texas.
Westcave is a natural treasure of the Texas Hill Country, rich with majestic beauty and ecological diversity. Located adjacent to the Pedernales River in Southwest Travis County, this 76-acre gem has been preserved and offered to the public since 1976.
