Rocky Creek is a community only a year old as of late 2011. It is being developed by Hillwood Communities with homes built by Drees Custom Homes and Highland Homes. It sits on 300 acres of prime Texas Hill Country in Bee Cave and is just a couple miles from Hamilton Pool.
Rocky Creek Location
Rocky Creek is six miles west on Hamilton Pool Road from where it splits from Hwy. 71 west of RM 620. It sits just above the Hays County line in Travis County about a mile past Crumley Ranch Road and a mile and a half before RM 12. Austin is 22 miles away and San Antonio is 78 miles away.
Rocky Creek Amenities
A ten foot wide primitive hiking trail along a mile of Rocky Creek is in place. Coming soon are a resort-style swimming pool and amenity center with children’s play area and a park. Outside Rocky Creek and just a few miles further west on Hamilton Pool Road is Hamilton Pool. It is a collapsed cave with a large natural swimming hole and 50-foot waterfall from rock cliffs above. The water is always cool and usually clean. Though the climb down to the pool poses some challenges, it is an easy hike from the pool over to the Pedernales River. Golf options — both private and public — are very close in Bee Cave, Village of the Hills and Lakeway.
Rocky Creek Schools
Resident students of Rocky Creek are living in the Lake Travis Independent School District. They attend the highly-rated Bee Cave Elementary School, located just a couple blocks west of Hwy. 71 and Hamilton Pool Road. The middle school is Lake Travis Middle and the high school is Lake Travis High — both on RM 620 on the west edge of Lakeway.
Rocky Creek Dining and Shopping
Shopping and dining are a breeze for Rocky Creek residents. They can grocery shop at HEB not even two miles down Hwy. 71 at Bee Caves Road or at Newflower Farmer’s Market in the Shops at the Galleria where Hwy. 71 and RM 620 meet. Also at this intersection on the other side of Hwy. 71 is Hill Country Galleria with some 40 stores, restaurants, movie theater and the Bee Cave City Hall and acclaimed library. The Shops at the Galleria is a smaller shopping center.
