We recently visited over Spring Break – it was a perfect day to enjoy the warmer temperatures in a gorgeous setting. We just went for the day and didn’t anticipate spending as much time as we did there. Simply put – it was a fantastic place to unplug and enjoy the beautiful Hill Country.
We started with a hike to Devil’s Waterhole. This small extension of Inks Lake, the Devil’s Waterhole is completely surrounded by bare pink granite hills. We sat in amazement watching kids jumping form this huge rock into the cool waters below. This well-known waterhole is a popular site to spend the day cliff-jumping. I can’t find much on the depths of the water here online, but it must be pretty deep. Those kids were having a blast.
Inks Lake State Park makes a wonderful day trip from Austin or a weekend camping trip to get out and enjoy all the Texas Hill Country has to offer.
