3. Hamilton Pool Preserve at Austin, Texas(3 hr 21 mins).
Hamilton Pool Preserve is located around 220 miles away from Dallas, Texas.
This emerald colored natural swimming hole is located in dripping springs which are 220 miles away from Dallas, Texas. You need to make a reservation if you are going during summer, We went there during off season so I had to make no reservation we drove in and brought a ticket.
We made our way down the rocky and steep hike of 0.4 miles to reach the Hamilton Pool. though the hike is uneven and rocky, the view and walk through lush green woods alongside the river makes you feel mesmerized. At the end of the hike and the trail of woods is Hamilton Pool Preserve. As we walked in towards the swimming pool we were awestruck by mother nature I mean all the canyons, clear bluish-green pool, 50-foot waterfall dripping from limestone canyon and the flora around made us feel like we were in a private island.
Water in the pool was so clear that we were able to see fish and turtles swimming around and since we went during off season(Sept-Oct) crowd was way less than what we expected and the place looked way more beautiful than the pictures.
