There's a short hike down the trail into the creek bed. The trail leads off to the right towards the pool itself, or off to the left for a slightly longer hike culminating at the Pedernales River (pronounced "perdinalis")
We opted for the pool first. Michael was fun to have along since this was all new to him. He is very interested in the natural wonders and stopped all along the way to take pictures and to peer at the rubble and rocks that litter the area just off the trail.
We stopped for a picnic about 3/4 of the way around. We made ourselves at home on the fallen rocks, hoping that today would not be the day that would see more falling pieces. It was such a serene and peaceful place to stop for a bite. We had eddies of swirling breeze making their way to us from above that made this spot simply delightful.
