Wimberley Rivers and Streams
Nestled in a valley, Wimberley's natural beauty owes much to the rivers and creeks flowing over sculpted limestone beds. And who can resist splashing around in a cooling river or creek on a hot summer day? 

In the winter, presence of this water offers different pleasures. Sitting beside the singing river, it's easy to imagine that our prehistoric predecessors in this valley could appear walking down a path at any moment... such is the seeming timelessness of the water. 

But, like much of the Central Texas Hill Country, area growth threatens the very treasures which attract development, not the least of which are the waterways.
 
The peaceful Blanco River, one of the Hill Country's smaller rivers

Most who live here and visit work to help preserve these treasures. Floating, swimming, wading... with planning and stewardship, these carefree pleasures may remain available to us and those who follow. The Wimberley Valley Watershed Association is a great place to begin and provides information about news and conditions.

Below are guidelines and resources relating to safety, care and enjoyment of Wimberley-area creeks and rivers. Your contributions and updates are invited.

We're sorry. Due to funding cuts by the previous Bush administration, the gauge for the Blanco (along with many others) is no longer in service. Click here to see those that remain. Click here for an article from the American Association for the Advancement of Science about budget cuts.

VisitWimberley.com is pleased to be the area website
referenced for the article. . .we'll keep you posted!
It's best to avoid the water in drought conditions,
which will produce higher than usual bacterial counts
in our normally clean rivers and streams. Please use
common sense in determining when to swim.
