Wilderness trek with some good elevation on the hike! Nice wilderness hike on a dirt/gravel/vegetation trail. The hike has scenic overlooks of the river below. Entrance fee to state park is $4.00.

Nice trail no need for hiking boots. You can actually swim in the upper spring pool. Just beautiful and the water is very clear. A must see!!!

This review is for the actual Spicewood Springs trail in Colorado Bend State Park. It was well worth coming back to the park to do this (these) trails. I would recommend starting at the Spicewood Canyon point and take that all the way to the end. Then loop back using the Spicewood Springs route. You will cross the water a few times and if the water is high...you might get your feet wet. Bring a spare pair of socks...maybe even a second pair of shoes. There is also an area to swim at the turn around point. Wish I brought some shorts and a towel.

Very hot if you go during the summer, the spring pool is amazing. I'm looking forward to going after it cools down so I can explore more.
