Texas Falls Recreation Area and Hiking Trails
In a land of waterfalls and natural beauty sits a hidden sacred spot; Texas Falls: The Jewel of the Green Mountains. Located just off Rt. 125 in Hancock, VT about 5 miles from the junction of Rt. 100 and Rt. 125, Texas Falls offers more than a photo op on the footbridge over the falls. Picnicking, camping, hiking and mountain bike riding on maintained gravel roads are all available as part of the National Forest system. Be sure to visit this very special spot on your next visit to the Green Mountain Valley. The trail meanders through the forest along Texas Brook toward the Texas Falls Picnic Area. To loop back to the falls area bear right before crossing the paved road to reach the upper section of the nature trail. Average hike time is 1 hour.
