This Preserve Near Austin Is Home To Caves, Canyons, And Gorgeous Waterfalls
Westcave Preserve has it all!
We're surrounded by nature everyday, but rarely are we able to explore the true, hidden gems of the Earth. Whether that's because we don't have time, or we just don't know about them, it's something that's not worth missing out on any longer! The more you know about the gorgeous Westcave Preserve, the more you'll want to explore it.
Westcave Preserve offers tours of their site every Saturday and Sunday. Starting June 8th until September 1st, their tours are scheduled for 8 AM, 10 AM, 12 PM and 2 PM. Gates will open at 7:30 in the morning and getting there early is absolutely recommended! Once you and your friends or family have purchased your tickets, you'll head out at your scheduled tour time with a friendly guide leading the way. What you see once you've begun your tour will leave you mindblown.
Westcave Preserve is home to an arid savanna, limestone crevices, sheltered canyons, and more. You'll be led through all three of these areas before ending up at the head of the canyon where an unbelievable 40-foot waterfall proudly sits. This stunning waterfall is constantly replenishing the emerald pool below, it's hard to resist jumping right in. And remember, seeing the canyon and cave is by guided tour only!
