Austin: Inks Lake and Colorado Bend State Park

Visited in December for 1 days by Drive with budget* of: US$65

Inks Lake State Park is 3 hour’s worth driving away from Houston. At Inks Lake, there was the Devil’s Waterhole, — which it is well-known for — a gift shop, and a few miles of trails. Devil’s Waterhole is worth going — the trails are quite short, and you can swim in it if the season’s right. The trails, however, were confusing as well as tiring, and the reward is only a small forest of trees. After leaving Inks Lake, we headed to Colorado Bend State Park, only an hour’s drive from Inks Lake. After routing our way to Gorman Falls (which Colorado Bend is known for), we hiked the way down to see it — and the waterfall was magnificent! It was well worth the trip.
