GEORGETOWN, TX — Texas is full of hidden treasures, and you don't have to look far to find this mystical lagoon in Georgetown.

At Blue Hole Park, visitors just have to hike a gorgeous 1.3 mile trail to find the watering hole.

The trail is lined with trees, so it is a great place to stay in the shade during the summer.

The trail follows the San Gabriel River, which is filled with fish and turtles.

You can also snap a photo of the little spillway that creates a miniature waterfall.

The park is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The park offers multiple trails, picnic tables, restrooms and fishing and swimming areas.

Free public parking is available at the corner of 3rd Street and Rock Street in the parking lot or the parking garage.

Jumping off the cliffs is not permitted at Blue Hole Park.

The following items are also prohibited:

  • Use or possession of any glass
  • Diving or jumping from cliff or rock face on City parkland
  • Blocking trail from public access
  • Parking in undesignated areas
  • Fires in undesignated grills or fire pits
  • Conducting any commercial or business activity
  • Indecent or abusive language or activity, which creates a public nuisance
  • Vandalizing or defacing any structure, facility, or natural feature
  • Pets off leash on land or in water

The park is located at 100 Blue Hole Park.
