Views of Limestone: The Sinks and Dripping Springs

Hiking & Fitness

Explore beautiful Limestone Canyon on this serene Saturday morning hike to Dripping Springs and the west viewing deck of The Sinks via Hicks Haul Road and Loma Ridge.  Limestone Canyon is one of the most pristine wilderness areas in the county, featuring the 20-to-40-million-year-old geologic formation known as The Sinks, as well as a year-round spring. Dripping Springs is an extremely sensitive area and an essential watering hole for wildlife.

The hike passes through coastal sage scrub, grasslands, and oak woodlands, and includes sweeping views from Limestone Ridge and from the West Deck viewing platform.
