Just 30 miles west of Austin lies a stunning natural area called Westcave Preserve, with its 40-foot waterfall, emerald pool, fern-covered grotto and ancient rock shelter. This book is a guide to one of Texas’ most beautiful and unknown places. It celebrates the preserve’s 40th anniversary of connecting children and families to nature and providing sanctuary for the Hill Country’s flora and fauna, and contains new information about the area’s history.
