Looking to get outside for a great Bouldering session in central Texas? Take a day-trip to Tonkawa Falls Park located in Crawford, TX. Pocketed limestone boulder problems line the scenic waterfall!

Tonkawa Falls Park is located just outside Crawford, TX (28 minutes, 21 miles) West from Waco, TX. The pocketed limestone bluffs that surround Tonkawa Falls hosts a number of established boulder problems ranging in difficulty from (V1 - V6+). Gravel parking is located to the North of the waterfall. Access the climbing area by crossing over a bridge and make your way to a covered pavilion. Stairs lead down to the base of the climbs. For a comprehensive guide, consider purchasing Texas Limestone Bouldering guidebook by Jeff Jackson.

Tonkawa Falls is a great destination to visit year round. It is best to avoid the summer heat, so early spring & fall is ideal.
