A short exploration of a small river gorge and nearby nature trail. Barrier-free access to ?shing is also provided. Cascades tumbling through a rocky gorge lure visitors to the Texas Falls Recreation Area. Primitive campsites, barrier-free fishing, attractive picnic grounds, and a pleasant nature trail conspire to keep them there. Located on the principal highway that crosses the northern lobe of Green Mountain National Forest, this convenient haven on the Hancock Branch of the White River strongly appeals to travelers anxious for a wayside rest. Stroll a few paces down a gravel path from the edge of the access road and the stone posts of a wooden fence-line to an observation point above the scenic falls.

Nice loop trail through the woods past small waterfalls. Refreshing on a hot day.
