Texas is filled with tons of beautiful, lush places to visit. One of those places is definitely the stunning Gorman Falls. This Texas gem is a 70-foot spring-fed waterfall hidden in Colorado Bend State Park. If you were looking for summer plans, look no further.
The waterfall is hidden behind rocky terrain and takes three-mile hike to get to it, but it is so worth it. Feel free to swim in the spring's beautiful water and explore the rocky caves. The place is so magical, it kind of reminds us of Middle Earth. If you feel like camping close to the spring, you can rent a spot starting at $10. The hike to the waterfall is a steep one, so we recommend you be extra careful when you make your way there.
Gorman Falls is usually covered in greenery and seasonal wildflowers. When the sun hits the falls in just the right spot, you can see a number of rainbows shimmering in the sky, making it look like its straight out of a fairytale. Making your way to the waterfall is completely self-guided so make sure to bring your map with you.
The waterfall is tucked away and separate from the rest of the park where you can paddleboat, swim and fish.
Entry to Colorado Bend State Park is only $5 daily and is open every day from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
If Gorman Falls isn't enough to satisfy your magical adventurer spirit, the park also offers tours of the caves that are located in the park for just $12.
The busiest time for visitors to go is spring and summer. We recommend going during the week because when the park gets too full, they shut down entry for a few hours.
