Texas Falls on Hancock Brook - Hancock, VT.
Texas Falls has long been a favorite Green Mountain National Forest attraction; a waterfall visited by many and seen in books and photographs by thousands more. If the falls look similar, they should. Hundreds of postcards, hiking guides, and portraits of Vermont have included Texas Falls. So although you may not have had the chance to visit this classic waterfall, its structure may seem familiar to you.
Managed by the U.S. Forest Service, Texas Falls, once a favorite swimming hole, is now off-limits to swimmers after several injuries occurred here. Wooden fencing surrounds the flume and falls, and the only views are from a boardwalk trail, which you are asked not to stray from. The best view is from the bridge that crosses over the stream. From this view you will see two small plunges with a deep green-blue pool in between them. Both plunges are of equal beauty, as they flow through a narrow ravine. Because of the beauty and the compactness of the gorge walls both sets of plunges look more like a flume rushing downstream.
