Dripping Springs Adventure| Milton Reimer’s Ranch

When we first moved to Dripping Springs I wanted to know of every outdoor adventure place available.

Raising three active boys is not for the faint of heart and I needed a place to let them test their physical limits, explore nature and get away from Youtube! Milton Reimer’s Ranch was the first place we discovered and we were NOT disappointed!

We parked in the Climber’s Canyon parking lot and found the most magical hike down to the cave where rock climbers can scale the ceilings of the cave and climb the cliffs. This hike is a gem that very few people know about and we have never seen more than 2 or 3 other people in that area when we have gone. It is a MUST see if you want to see some lush landscape and explore a cool cave.

To get down this trail you will need good shoes! You have to grab a chain and scoot across a little ledge and then walk down some slippery rock stairs to get where you are going so make sure you have the proper attire.

The caves at the Climber’s Canyon trail were so incredible and well worth the hike! The kids explored inside the darker caves, found frogs, look at the stalactites and were just in awe at the interesting landscape!

Once you pass the cave you can hike down to the river and on the way down you run into several small pools of water, trickling water falls, lush ferns and huge trees. There have been reports of Water Moccasins so be aware of your surroundings near the water.

There are several things to do at Reimer’s Ranch: horse back riding trails, mountain biking trails, swimming in the river, fishing, hiking, boulder jumping and rock climbing.

We continued down the Climber’s Canyon trail that loops all the way to the swimming area and ran into a huge boulder. We later passed by a group of high school boys who climbed it and they were jumping 20-30 feet off of it into the river. YIKES and COOL!! Be sure to bring lots of water if you are hiking in from April-October because it is hot and humid!

When we reached the pebbly beach the kids stripped down to their shorts and started wading in. It was such a wonderful place and we give it 5 stars!
