WEBSITE: Texas Parks and Wildlife: McKinney Falls
WHAT MAKES MCKINNEY UNIQUE:
The otherworldly landscape as you enter the falls area resembles the surface of the moon. After a rain, you can find little fish swimming in the stone pools.
The trail to the swimming area takes you under a limestone cliff shaped like a breaking wave (see photo).
