Know Before You Go

Mountain Bike Trails

Mountain bike trails close down after significant rain to maintain their integrity. They re-open after they're thoroughly dried. Check this page or the fee booth staff for current status.

Caution

Mountain biking and rock climbing are inherently hazardous activities. Please read the warning signs at the beginning of the trailheads leading to activity areas.

Road to the Beach Status

The road to the beach will be closed for public safety reasons on weekends and holidays, from Saturday, May 26 through mid-September. We plan on keeping it open for drop-offs on summer weekdays that are not holidays. After mid-September, the road to the beach will return to being open 7 days a week.

Swimming

Swim in the Pedernales River! It's about a 300-yard hike from the parking lot to the river. On busy summer weekends and holidays, the hike might be as long as a half-mile from the overflow parking areas.

Reimers Observatory

Reimers Observatory is located inside Reimers Ranch and we invite you to visit our evening program. Come view celestial objects and learn about the night sky with our two large telescopes.

Grills

The park does not provide cooking grills, but you may bring your own. They must be above ground and not pose a fire hazard. You can burn gas and charcoal, but not wood due to flying embers.

Bird Walks

We have monthly bird walks the first Saturday from October through April. All levels of birders welcome! It's included in the regular park entrance fee. The walk starts at 7:30 am and lasts two hours.

Park staff will escort you on a 2-3 mile long bird walk on relatively flat trails. We recommend you bring binoculars, sturdy shoes, and drinking water. Expect to see birds in a variety of habitats, as we have many wintering sparrow.

Guided Tours

We give guided tours on Saturdays from October through April, weather permitting. It's included in the regular park entrance fee. The tour starts at 10:00 am and lasts two hours. Guided tours are limited to the first 30 participants.

We will hike 2-3 miles into the backcountry area of the park where vehicles are not allowed. The staff will talk about the natural history of the land. We recommend you bring sturdy shoes and drinking water.

About

This pristine parkland, open space and reserve land in western Travis County with almost 3 miles of continuous frontage along the Pedernales River is the largest parkland acquisition in the history of Travis County.

The Reimers Ranch parcel is already well known and well loved by many park users. The sizeable Central Texas rock-climbing community views Reimers Ranch as a destination with world-class rock climbing. The active local mountain biking community likewise enjoys Reimers Ranch’s over 18 miles of trails through the classic Central Texas landscape. Local anglers have come to Reimers’ for generations to fish for white bass in the Pedernales River. The Pogue Springs Preserve/Hogge Reserve component of the land acquisition is less known but equally spectacular with Pedernales River frontage, deep canyons and panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country.
