The One Place In Texas That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

Although Lord of the Rings is a fictional tale, you can experience its magical, otherwordly scenery right here in Texas. There’s a place in the hill country called Gorman Falls that will transport you to the mystical Middle Earth and make you forget what planet you’re on, let alone what state you’re in.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The park is located west of Lampasas and can be reached by following FM 580 for 24 miles until you get to Bend. From there, signs will guide you to the park entrance.

So, what do you think? Are you ready to embrace your inner hobbit and pay Gorman Falls a visit?
