(You will understand why this is RR 1 when you see where it is located) – This road runs alongside the Pedernales River where the LBJ State Park is located. You might have heard about how LBJ was a pretty big fan of the Hill Country. What is particularly useful about this area is that there are several small dams along this stretch of the river creating a number of impoundments and the river typically has water in it even when all the docks and boathouses situated closer to Lake Travis are sitting on dry ground. Dogs are OK if kept on a leash. There are several access points to the river off of RR 1 where you should be able to go for some swimming or flat water paddling. An added benefit is that not many people go here to swim or float because it is not a well known area. This road is just to the north of Hwy 290 and it runs from about Stonewall over to Hye. Contact the folks at the State Park for information on river conditions. You should see the signs to RR1 from 290.
