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!

easy walk over a rocky path until the end. steep decline but there are poles with chains to help you down and then back up. Falls are amazing.

Falls were cool. Down by the river and low and green and lush. Otherworldly. Trail was nothing special. Too rocky to run. The tie in trail goes to great over look of river and has better footing. I would like to come back and see more of park. Btw park hard to get to. In the middle of nowhere.

Love this trail! It's 1.5 miles to the fall and 1 mile roughly to the springs... defiantly check out the springs. The trail down to the Gorman fall was pretty steep and locks of rocks . Be sure to debug plenty of water and probably a few snacks to sit and snack while you enjoy listening and looking at the fall.

Nice hike but need hiking boots with the rocky terrain. The waterfall is a must see and worth walking over all the rocks. Take a camera and swim suit because you can coo off in the river by the falls and take lots of pictures the scenery is breathtaking.
