The weather is still blessing us with plenty of sunshine so why not make the most of it and have a park day. If you're in the Waco area, or happen to be travelling down I35, Pepper Creek Trail in Temple, Texas should be added to your lists of stops. It is considered to be one of the most scenic places in Texas.

Completely free to visit, the trail is four miles long and is known for being an amazing place to hike. But the main feature and reason why people stop by is the small but stunning waterfall that runs year-round. This hidden waterfall is part of a creek that is the perfect place for you to get some fresh, nature air.

Surrounding the creek there are several stone tables with astonishing views of the water that are just perfect for a picnic. The trail is beloved by hikers and cyclists alike but come on, who wouldn't love a place as green as this? The trail is open from dawn till dusk so you have plenty of time to enjoy all of their wonderful bridges until then. 

The one-mile trail is located between FM 2305 and Airport Road in Temple, Texas 76502. For more information on this gorgeous trail check out the website here
