Devil's Sinkhole

State Natural Area - Texas

Devil's Sinkhole State Natural Area is a natural bat habitat near the city of Rocksprings in Edwards County, Texas. Home to the Mexican free-tailed bat, access to the area is available only through advance reservations. The 40-by-60-foot (12.2 m × 18.3 m) opening drops down to reveal a cavern some 400 feet (122 m) below. Carved by water erosion, the cavern is home to several million Mexican free-tailed bats that emerge at sunset during April through October. Evening bat flight tours are offered in summer only. Guided nature hikes also are available.
