Dead Man's Hole is a very interesting place explaining a dark piece of history in Burnet County. The site itself is easy to access, a very short walk from parking. Of course the hole itself is covered up for safety reasons but I'm glad it...More

It’s a covered hole, you may miss it if you are not looking. Weird and creepy side stop. The hole is covered so no one can fall in, and there is a historical marker telling the history of the hole.

I was vary unimpressed when I can and all I found was a hole you could dig in a day. Atlease it's free.

Not well marked from 281. Area unkept. Kind of creepy area but nice piece of history. But mostly just a marker.

There are no signs from 281 guiding you to this historical site, nor are there any as you get closer on the local roads. If you don't plan ahead and check out the directions, you won't even know you passed it. When you do find...More

This is a bit of history, not much to see but maybe give you a push to do some research. It is not easy to find, just a basic street sign on the road, Dead Mans Drive. It is in a nice area for a...More

Was recommended by our hostess at the resort. Interesting bit of history. Not hard to find and not much to see, but do a bit of research on the web to get the full story.

This is an interesting spot to see at least once. It has an historical significance from the early days of Burnet County that can be instructive. Take CR401 to the east from US281 (south of Marble Falls) or north from TX71 just east of the...More

I wouldn't make a special trip just for this. But my 8 and 9 year olds loved the story and history of this cool hole!
