There's a new trail out here: the Cedar Chopper Loop.  http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publications/pwdpubs/media/park_maps/pwd_mp_p4507_140.pdf

Not too challenging or spectacular but it gives you a good loopy way to get down to the Gorman Springs and Gorman Falls trails.  I'd never been to see the falls before and both it and the springs were well worth the trek.  The spring-fed creek has a ton of water in it but the falls looks like it is not running anywhere near its potential. 

Great hike for the drive!

This was my first hike since recently moving to Texas from Idaho. I had heard htere wasn't much here in TX to see but this hike proved that wrong. Great scenery and wildlife! Next time I'll allow for a longer hike and see some of the other trails!
very nice

Very scenic hike. I hiked the Spicewood creek loop. It was about 4 miles. When I got down to the creek I did lose the trail a few times and had to bushwhack my way. But as long as you follow the creek you will come across the trail again. To see the Gorman Waterfall you have to take the tour at 4$ a person. I took it and the waterfall is pretty cool. well worth the 4 dollars.

A little more rugged than I was expecting. Beautiful trail with many waterfalls. We will hike this trail again in the summer

Was planning to walk again the next day but it rained and the low water crossing at the park entrance closed the park.
