AC Blanco State Park FOR EMERGENCIES, PLEASE CALL 9-1-1. Explore beyond the Blanco River and gain a new perspective on its stunning blue-green waters. Take a short hike and experience a different side of Blanco State Park. The riparian habitat along the river is home to plants, animals, and millions of years of history beneath your feet. STAYING SAFE KNOW YOUR LIMITS. Prepare for sun and heat. Wear sunscreen, insect repellent and appropriate clothing/hiking shoes. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. Your body quickly loses fluids when you’re on the trail. Bring a quart of water per hour of activity. TELL OTHERS WHERE YOU’LL BE. If possible, avoid exploring alone. Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return. WEAR A HELMET. When biking, check with park HQ to match the ride to your skill level. Wear a helmet to protect yourself in case of a crash. 101 Park Road 23 Blanco, TX 78606 (830) 833-4333 TRAIL DIST DIFFICULTY DESCRIPTION PUMPHOUSE TRAIL .3 mi. (round trip) Easy Take your family on a short and easy hike on this level trail. Keep your eyes and ears open for birds and turtles as you overlook the Blanco River. CASWELL NATURE TRAIL 1.3 mi. (round trip) Easy Explore a riverside forest on this rocky hike. You’ll also get a unique view of a Civilian Conservation Corps dam, constructed in the 1930s. TRAIL ETIQUETTE Trash your trash. Keep the park natural. Pack out all of your trash and Leave No Trace. Leave feeding to nature. Feeding wild animals will make them sick and more likely to cause harm to people. Don’t Pocket The Past. Help preserve Texas heritage. Leave artifacts where you find them and report their location to a ranger. Take only memories and pictures. Disturbing or removing any of the park’s plants, animals or artifacts is a violation of state law. Keep pets on leashes to keep them safe, while protecting wildlife. We need to know about your caches. Please check with park HQ before placing geocaches within the park. POTENTIALLY HARMFUL PLANTS AND ANIMALS LIVE HERE. You’ll see them more easily if you stay on trails. WEATHER CHANGES QUICKLY. Check forecasts before you leave and prepare for unexpected changes in the weather.
