Twin Falls – Texas

Trailhead of Twin Falls
Obviously, the main attraction to Perdernales Falls State Park is Perdernales Falls.  If it wasn’t then the state park would be grossly miss named.  But do not overlook the short hike to Twin Falls.  It is a small waterfall.  Though it has its merits.  One being waterfalls are few and far between in the Plains.  It is a short hike just under a mile roundtrip.  Also, the Twin Falls Nature Trail will provide lush green environment to walk through.  Twin Falls is spring fed so runs pretty much year-round helping to keep the area much greener then the rest of the park.
Trail to Twin Falls
Twin Falls trailhead is located at their campground. There is a small parking lot near the start of the trailhead that a person could park at if the state park is not busy.  There is also parking at the entrance to camping area for day use visitors.  I think the hike from the parking lot to the trailhead might actually be longer than the hike itself.  Once on the trail the hike is pretty straight forward.  Follow the marked trail and before you know it you will be at the overlook.  Now the view from the overlook was ok.  A view from the base would be better but there were plenty of signs up asking people to stay on the trail. I stayed to the marked area. but I could see there was a steep but worn path down to the base of the falls.  Hopefully someday, the park will be able to make the path down an official trail.
Twin Falls at Perdanelles State Park
While most of your time at the state park should be used hiking the other trails, escaping the Texas heat with a quick swim or exploring the Perdenales Falls area.  Twin Falls is worth the quick walk over to see it.  If nothing else the trail showcases a different type of ecosystem that can be find in the park.
