Nature

Birders can enjoy viewing some of the 155 species of birds found in the park, including favorites such as the golden-cheeked warbler, black-capped vireo and bald eagle. Gorman Falls is located on the western bank of the Colorado River, approximately 10 miles above Lake Buchanan, and includes a portion of Gorman Creek, which feeds Gorman Falls. Gorman Falls is an impressive, 60-foot-high waterfall. The falls' travertine formations and associated lush vegetation are very scenic. Small travertine dams have formed quiet pools of clear water that support a variety of aquatic communities, including one of the purest strains of our state fish, the Guadalupe bass. The formations and habitat are very fragile so no swimming, wading, climbing or fishing is allowed in the falls area, creek or spring. Spicewood Springs Creek flows through a deep canyon on the southern end of the park, offering spring-fed swimming holes and small waterfalls.
