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 was a great trail in my opinion it's better than gorman falls
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.
added this onto the spicewood springs trail.Made for a nice way back to the starting point.
enjoyed the challenge of water crossings and very varied terrain.
Horrible! Took me to the middle of nowhere! Wasted an hour of my life just to drive to BFE!
