What is Texas Hill Country?

Texas Hill Country is a hilly, transitional area between Texas' southeastern lowlands, and the plains of the Edwards Plateau in the north and west.

The peak is roughly 2,460 feet high, rising gradually from the surrounding land. The highpoint is 30 minutes northwest of the county seat of Junction, following the Interstate 10 west and then Farm Road 1674 north. The peak is also roughly 70 miles west of Austin, Texas.

The city of Austin lies at the eastern edge of Texas Hill Country. The Austin Metro is considered a major urban area within Texas Hill Country.

Texas Hill Country - Water Info

The Texas Hill Country is known for its relatively abundant freshwater and green hills. Much of this water comes from underground aquifers which require careful management

Furthermore, because of the geological makeup of the Hill Country region, the groundwater drawn here tends to be some of the hardest in the country. You can learn more about hard water in the Texas Hill Country here

Live water river on a ranch in central Texas Hill Country

Given the transitional nature of the area, land types and uses are varied, presenting a range of opportunities.

Recreational opportunities abound, from fishing, rafting, and swimming, to simple sightseeing to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and wildlife.

Plains to the north and south support large scale ranching operations, while more niche farming flourishes throughout, including orchards, flowers, and herbs.

The proximity to major urban centers, tourism, and abundance of live water rivers make this area an especially exciting prospect.
