I STARTED OUT WALKING TOWARD THE PRIMITIVE SITE BY THE RANGER STATION AND FOLLOWED THE WHITE TRAIL UP TO THE ROAD WHICH HAD TO BE A GOOD 3.5 TO 4 MILES OF BEAUTIFUL TRAIL. CROSSED THE ROAD AND MADE THE JOURNEY BACK DOWN TOWARDS THE RIVER 5 MILES THOUGH VERY BEAUTIFUL. I SPENT ALL DAY ON THIS TRAIL I STOPPED AND ENJOYED EVERY BIT THE BEST PART IS THE FALLS IF YOUR COMING SOUTH WEST YOU DECND THE FALLS AND THEN CROSS THE CREEK SEVERAL TIMES WITH A SMALL AREA OF ROCK MANUVERING THIS AREA IS WHERE I SAT FOR LUNCH ON TOP OF A ROCK LEDGE OVER LOOKING THE A SMALL POOL OF THE CLEAREST WATER i HAVE EVER SEEN IN TEXAS

"This book will be in great demand by travelers, park visitors, and aficionados of Texas landscapes." -- James Wright Steely, Director of National Register Programs, Texas Historical Commission Whether you enjoy looking at scenic landscapes, touring historical sites, camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, swimming, boating, horseback riding, rock climbing, or almost any other outdoor recreation, there's a state park in Texas where you can pursue your pleasure. From the Panhandle to the Rio Grande Valley, the Pineywoods to the Big Bend, some 125 state parks offer you a natural escape from fast-lane living. This book is the only official and complete guide to the state parks of Texas. Loaded with accurate, up-to-date information from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, it describes the attractions of each park and gives details-- including a locator map-- about camping and lodging facilities, types of recreation offered, and addresses and phone numbers for more information. To assist you in planning trips, the parks are grouped into seven geographic regions-- Big Bend Country, Gulf Coast, Hill Country, Panhandle Plains, Pineywoods, Prairies and Lakes, and the South Texas Plains. With gorgeous color photographs and an inviting text, Laurence Parent depicts the natural features and attractions of each region. So if you want to watch the sunset over Enchanted Rock, fish in the surf on the beach at Galveston, or listen for a ghostly bugle among the ruins of Fort Lancaster, let this book be your complete guide. Don't take a trip in Texas without it.
