Crockett Gardens and Falls is a 5.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Georgetown, Texas that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Was wet so some mud and slippery rocks. Just before we got to the falls, there was a small stream that is probably dry most of the time. We didn't cross so we didn't see the falls. Trail was fun though.
This hike was amazing. You don't have to pay to get into the park if you tell the kind little lady at the front gate that you are just there to hike.
The trail was rocky in some spots. The fall itself was breath taking and definitely worth the hike.
This was a really nice out and back Trail with nice variation in terrain. Nothing steep or too much elevation change. It was very rocky so pay attention to where you walk, don't trip and wear durable hike shoes to protect your feet. No water crossing except one area but it wasn't flowing when crossed. It's nice that the entire Trail is 26 miles long around the whole lake so you'll see a lot of backpackers going from one campground to the next. It's mostly shaded from the Cedar Breaks Park to the falls. Except once you get to the Crockett Falls sign directing you to turn right, it's all grown over. We opted to not go through it. But if you keep walking past that sign there's an opportunity to scramble down a short hill on your right to see the falls by the shore. Very nice!! It takes about 1hr 20min to get there from Cedar Break. Lovely hike!!
Lovely walk, rocky in places. Most people are great about leashing their dogs, though a few people still don't (seriously, people, be considerate of wildlife and people who have dogs who aren't as friendly). Free if you are hiking, just mention it at the window.
We only went 1.25 miles in then back, but this was a beautiful hike with some decent elevation to it. There are rocks, gravel, dirt, trees. This hike fed my soul♡ We even met people who left their boat to jump from a ~40ft cliff who gave us advice and lent us their life vests to take the plunge too!
