Description: Just north of the Village of Wimberley is the Jacobís Well Natural Area. The water flowing from Jacobís Well, which is actually an artesian spring, is pushed forth naturally from the Trinity Aquifer roughly 140 feet below the surface. With layered limestone cliffs on one side, a vibrantly vegetated bank on the other and a lively riparian area alongside the creek, the gem of the Texas Hill Country has a way of enchanting visitors of all ages.
