GUIDED CANYON TOUR

By Reservation Only

Each Guided Canyon Tour has a maximum number of 20 people..

Prepare yourself – the majestic beauty of our unique Texas Hill Country nature preserve will leave you breathless! Our expert-guided tours take visitors from an arid savanna through a limestone crevice into a sheltered canyon of lush plant life. At the head of the canyon stands Westcave, with a stunning 40-foot waterfall replenishing the emerald pool below. Visitors will go behind the waterfall and into a one-roomed limestone cave. This is a one mile round trip moderate to difficult hike that is 1.5-2 hours long..

Access to the canyon, cave, and grotto are by guided tour only.

All events are weather permitting. No Pets are allowed at Westcave.
