Explore the Canyon Lake Gorge. In July of 2002, torrential rains and flooding caused up to 67,000 cubic feet of water per second to flow over the spillway of Canyon Lake, Texas for approximately six weeks. As a result of this, a 1-mile long gorge covering over 65 acres was created! Visiting the Gorge is like stepping out of a time machine, as the gorge provides exposure to rock as old as 111 million years old! The gorge is an outdoor classroom where you can explore fossils, dinosaur footprints that have been undisturbed for millions of years, a series of pools that are fed by springs, waterfalls, and a relatively new ecosystem.
