You Might Be Crazy To Swim At This Spot. You’ll See Why When You Hit The Water.

Most people wouldn’t want to jump into a gaping hole in a Texas river. But most people aren’t locals at Jacob’s Well. Jacob’s Well is a natural “karstic spring” located in the Texas Hill Country. You can find it northwest of Wimberley, Texas, and people come from all over to get a look at it. Some even jump in!

Jacob’s Well descends straight down for about 30 feet (9.1 m), then continues downward at an angle through a series of silted chambers separated by narrow restrictions, finally reaching a depth of 120 feet (37 m)!

People have drowned here in the past, so if you decide to jump in, you better have some friends nearby for safety.  Stop and see Jacob’s Well next time you’re in this part of Texas, and maybe jump in the water- if you think you can handle it.
