Explore The Canyon Lake Gorge For One Day Only

In 2002 water from Canyon Lake went over the spillway, creating a gorge and unearthing history.

Now, for the first time, people will be allowed to explore part of the gorge for free without a guided tour.

LaMarriol Smith with the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority says there is a lot to see.

“It exposed the different fault features, lots and lots of fossils, dinosaur tracks,” said Guadalupe Blanco River Authority's LaMarriol Smith. “So, it’s just a whole cacophony of different things, geological findings that people can take a look at, walk around. There’s a lot of water exposed. There are water falls. It’s a beautiful feature.”

“Explore the Gorge” will take place this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for people ages 7 and up.  The gorge is located on Corps of Engineers Road off South Access Road south of FM 306 below the dam.
