Cliff walls and interesting rock outcroppings make this a unique destination. Include this stop in a hike to Gorman Falls. 31.0501° -98.4975° This bedrock depression, carved by springs and seeps, is an important ecological feature as it supports unique plant communities and wildlife. 5 GORMAN SPRING 6 GORMAN FALLS 7 RIVER OVERLOOK 31.0519° -98.4858° Subterranean waters from miles of contributing drainage are forced to the surface, feeding Gorman Creek and providing the mineral compounds that have built Gorman Falls. Living within the creek is one of the purest strains of our state fish, the Guadalupe bass. 31.0584° -98.4821° Rising 65 feet above the river, Gorman Falls is a unique geologic formation that supports a sensitive ecosystem. The mineral-rich spring water deposits layers of calcite, slowly building formations called travertine. Protect this very fragile area by viewing it from a distance. 31.0649° -98.4856° You can see for miles at this overlook which sits more than 200 feet above the Colorado River. Look for Gorman Falls to the south.
