Westcave Preserve Outdoor Discovery Center


Founded in 1976 as Westcave Preserve, the mission of Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center is to inspire people to develop a lifelong practice of enjoying and protecting nature.

We accomplish this through educational programs, collaborative alliances, and conservation of our beautiful 76-acre preserve.

Take a hike to the grotto - The expert-guided tours take visitors from an arid savanna through a limestone crevice into a sheltered canyon of lush plant life. At the end of the mile-long path, the lush central Texas landscape opens to the most gorgeous 40-foot waterfall that cascades into a beautiful, natural emerald pool.


Hiking is also available in the “Uplands” area of the preserve. Hiking in this area does not require a guide. The trails wind through a dynamic Live Oak and Ashe Juniper savanna that are great for catching a glimpse of native wildlife that inhabit the area.
