Hancock, Vermont

Hike at Texas Falls Recreation Area

1 Miles Total - 209 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

Known as The Jewel of the Green Mountains this natural beauty is a must see when traveling through the Green Mountain Valley!

Directly across from the main parking area are the viewing access points of Texas Falls.  A footbridge crosses high above the flume and gorge, offering the best views. 

Crossing the bridge, there are plenty of other great view points with wooden railings keeping you away from the steep drops.  The downstream portion of the falls offers another small viewing area with a view through the rocky gorge. Following the brook upstream there are some nice chances to get close up to the clear mountain water.
