Why Would Anyone Be Insane Enough To Dive In This Texas Swimming Hole? You’ll See why When You Hit The Water!
· Written by Taylor Goldblatt
If you came across this gaping hole in a Texas river, would your first instinct be to jump on in? Probably not. However, that’s what locals LOVE to do at Jacob’s Well. Jacob’s Well is a natural “karstic spring” in the Texas Hill Country. It’s located northwest of Wimberley, Texas, and families from all around come to see it. And jump in it.
The well was discovered in the 1850s when settlers in the area followed the nearby Cypress Creek to its source.
The fact that there have been actual fatalities at the site would lead me to believe that people would stop jumping in, but of course they don’t. So if you’re ever in this area of Texas and wish to take a quick (dangerous) dip, head over to Jacob’s Well!
