Pedernales River: The Pedernales is an iconic part of central Texas it is a tributary of the Colorado River, approximately 106 miles long. Rising from springs in southeastern Kimble County, it flows west to east across the Texas Hill Country toward Austin. In total, the watershed encompasses about 812,000 acres. The name “Pedernales”, first used in the middle 18th century, comes from a Spanish word for the flint rocks characteristic of the riverbed.

The river has a close association with the Texas Hill Country, it is tied to the history of the region and representative of its geography. Along its route it flows over numerous rugged limestone escarpments as it winds eastward.

Traditionally inhabited by Lipan Apache, the first permanent European settlement along the river was in 1846, when the town of Fredericksburg was established by Germanimmigrants. The threat of raids from Apaches restricted settlement in the area until the 1880s. Signs of a bygone era, Native American artifacts can still be found along the riverbank and surrounding areas.

There are five protected state parks along the Pedernales, and numerous conservation organizations work with private landowners to ensure that this valuable natural resource will be enjoyed for generations to come.
