This preserve was set aside to protect several caves with rare biota, and which forms part of the drainage that supplies water directly to Barton Springs. The preserve itself is an urban greenbelt that is somewhat dense and overgrown, but not exactly bushwhacking. Visiting several of the caves on site is permissible by permit, usually given to caving groups and educational groups through Austin Parks and Recreation in order to preserve the caves and protect public safety
