Return to Good Water Trail

Tricky footing
It may not look all that treacherous, but picking your way over these pointy, holey rocks for hours takes its toll. (Photo by plectrudis)
Glorious emerald mound in winter
After the rains in late Dec 2015, the falls were brilliantly green and gushing with water. (Photo by plectrudis)
Goodwater Loop - jeep track from Tejas Park trailhead
The trail is much more comfortable in December--there's some fall color, and the grasshoppers are dead/dormant. (Photo by plectrudis)
San Gabriel River in Tejas Park - Goodwater Loop
Take the little foot trail to the left off of the main jeep track from the Tejas Park trailhead to reach the river. ~1.5 mi from trailhead. (Photo by plectrudis)

Trail View
At the Cedar Breaks trailhead the path is easy. Things get a bit rougher when the trail meets the lake and starts following its shore. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Crockett Springs feeds a couple of waterfalls that descend into an arm of the lake. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Near the springs the ruins of a springhouse and corral can be found. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Limestone outcropping
Located less than a half-mile in from Jim Hogg Park, this is one of the neat features of this section. (Photo by dburatti)
The Goodwater Trail cuts right through a corral. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Another Building

Trail View
The trail near the trailhead is composed of gravel. That soon changes in about a quarter mile. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Lake Georgetown
Lake Georgetown as seen from a point along the trail. Early enough in the day before the boaters showed up. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Crockett Springs Falls
A rainy month prior to my hike meant that the falls at Crockett Gardens were gushing more than usual. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Rougher Trail
The terrain between mile 5 and 6 may be the most interesting. The trail gets very rough and ventures through numerous rock fields. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
