The park currently offers the outdoor enthusiast access to primitive camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, swimming, paddling, birding and wildlife viewing, and guided tours of caves and waterfalls. The park has 26 miles of multi-use trails (hiking and mountain biking) and 4 miles of trail designated as hiking only. When river levels are normal (call for current conditions) paddlers can travel upstream as well as down to explore or access the park by river. When Lake Buchanan is near normal levels, the river is navigable from the park's boat ramp all the way to the lake, approximately 10 miles. In this area the river is characterized by slow moving water through the beautiful canyon lands of the Colorado, hazards include frequent low water levels and seasonal flood debris.

I took the longer route to the falls. Trail is quite rocky, I know dogs are allowed but I probably wouldn't take them on this trail. Kind of bummed I couldn't put my feet in the water at the waterfall but it was pretty. Will definitely visit again, maybe check out the creek next time.

It was muddy because of all the rain but all the walking and climbing was worth the wait to see the falls. STUNNING views. Some areas were moderately difficult to track but nothing too hard. I'm sure it would've been easier if it was slippery and muddy. After you get to the falls be sure to walk left of the sitting area and climb the small rock walk to get to see the cave! It was so awesome.

The waterfall alone is worth the visit.

loved all the hidden details and can't wait to go back to camp!

You have to do it all just to get to the waterfall! It's so worth it!

I love this trail. Take the time to travel the Gorman Creek Trail too. I had no idea this existed in Texas!

lovely walk along the river. they need to clear the trail of plants in one area but otherwise easy.
