Added by Erin Newman-Mitchell

A serene and shaded half-mile hike with beautiful views of waterfalls.

Twin Falls Nature Trail is a half mile loop trail located within Pedernales Falls State Park between Dripping Springs and Johnson, City, Texas. The trail head is located near the campgrounds and parking can be found near the bathrooms. It is an easy trail with a very slight descent. The trail itself is pretty narrow however it is an extremely lightly trafficked loop. It's completely shaded and half way down the trail there is an overlook of the Twin Falls for which the trail gets its name. The park does ask all hikers and visitors to stay on the trail in effort to preserve the nature and surrounding foliage. 

This trail can overgrow at times so jeans and hiking boots are recommended! It's a great little hike with some scenic views and peaceful sounds.
