Plan A Visit To Cattail Falls, Texas’ Beautifully Blue Waterfall
Big Bend has a little bit of everything — including waterfalls, despite the arid West Texas climate. Cattail Falls is hiding within the towering mountain peaks, accessible via a moderate, 5.7-mile hike. At 80 feet tall, it’s truly a hidden desert gem that belongs on your outdoor adventure bucket list.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

You’ll park at the trailhead for Sam Nail Ranch. The road is prone to flooding after heavy rainfall, so check with NPS before heading out. Visit the AllTrails page to learn more.
