Texas Falls

Hancock, vermont

Ready to explore one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Green Mountain National Forest? This lovely area includes a riverside picnic spot and a short nature trail.

Texas Falls began to form at the close of the ice age approximately 12,000 years ago when melting glacier ice began to cut through the glacial till and bedrock.

The Texas Falls Nature Trail is an easy hike through a mature forest. If you just want to view Texas Falls, it's just a short walk from the parking area.

This is a mixed forest with lots of beech, cherry, and birch trees, with a few interspersed hemlocks. Ferns, hobble bush, winterberry, and spring wildflowers carpet the forest floor.

After walking the loop, a spur trail descends below the falls for another vantage point of the glacial potholes in the river.
