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 day hike. Bring some water with you. The river is a nice touch to the hike. Gives you a bit more scenery. You can also go for a walk in it in some spots where it is really low.

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.
