The trail travels above Spicewood Springs Creek along a ridgeline that provides excellent views of the spring's pools and waterfalls below.
From Lemons Ridge Pass
, it descends down to the River Trail
and park headquarters. There is still some climbing though. If you start from the River Trail
, be prepared for a lot of technical climbing to reach Lemons Ridge Pass
Note that this is the Spicewood Canyon Trail and not the nearby hiking-only Spicewood Springs Trail.
