GORMAN FALLS: A CHALLENGING DESTINATION

TUMBLEWEED SMITH

Water cascades 70 feel down a steep bluff at Colorado Bend State Park south of San Saba. The area is known as Gorman Falls and has more than one stream. There is a narrow rush of water just a few feet away from the tall one. The water moves fast down a crevice between a tall bluff and a caliche hillside. It’s a shady spot with an observation deck overlooking the Colorado River. The waterfalls never quit flowing and provide a pleasing sound to enjoy while you recover from your hike to the falls.

We had made arrangements to meet Debbie Hicks, the interpretive resource manager of the park. I’m glad we did because the drive to the park is long enough for you to think you’ll never get there. But the highway has lots of curves and passes through some beautiful hills and valleys.
