Jacob’s Well Natural Area

jacobs wellThe County is now running Jacob’s Well and the surrounding area as a public natural area. The natural area features an underground cave and artesian springs that form a beautiful, but small, pool. Contact them to see when they will be conducting the next guided tour that discusses the hydrologic features of the well, which forms the headwaters of the gorgeous Cypress Creek that flows through Wimberley.  This is a great place to bring the kids to learn about the natural environment in this area and to take a dip in the icy water.  We only recently added this to our top picks because now the county limits the number of people allowed at the swimming hole and you have to reserve a spot before going out there.  Also, visits are limited to two hours.  No need to check water flows.  If the park is open the water will be fine.

    Hi my name is Katherine, I am a parks specialist with Hays County and Jacob’s Well Natural Area is a park under our control. I was hoping y’all could edit some incorrect info on your page. Many of our park visitors get confused with info coming from unofficial sites. our email address is actually parks@co.hays.tx.us. I am unsure who is connected to that email you have listed. Our phone number is (512)214-4593. The address is 1699 Mt. Sharp Road in Wimberley TX. Our guided tours are suspended over the summer but will resume on Sep. 2 at 9AM and will be every Saturday at 9AM through the fall. Please contact me for more info. I am hoping to clear up confusion for our visitors 🙂 Thanks and have a great day.
