Some of the best family-friendly hikes in Texas are:
- Santa Elena Canyon Trail, Big Bend National Park

This lovely little trail is under one mile long and features breathtaking mountain views. It's the most kid-friendly way to experience West Texas' mountainous landscape without actually climbing a mountain!

The shortest hike yet, Twin Falls Nature Trail is just half a mile in length and leads to a gorgeous waterfall that many people aren't even aware exists.
What are the best waterfall hikes in Texas?
Speaking of waterfalls, the best waterfall hikes in Texas include:
- Gorman Falls Trail at Colorado Bend State Park, Bend
Like something from Middle Earth, Gorman Falls is a lush, nearly 70-foot-high waterfall that streams down a cliffside into a pristine pool. If you're up for the three-mile hike, the views are simply jaw-dropping.
- Cattail Falls Trail at Big Bend National Park
Easily among the most remote waterfalls in Texas, Cattail Falls is located on a 3-mile trail in the rugged desert landscape of Big Bend National Park. If you can find it, you won't be able to believe your eyes.
- Hamilton Pool Preserve, Dripping Springs
It only takes around 10 minutes to walk from the parking area to the otherworldly grotto known as Hamilton Pool, and the trek is totally worth it to see the 50-foot waterfall.
