The Canyon Lake Gorge was carved by the flood of 2002 when more than 67,000 cubic feet of water per second flowed over the spillway of Canyon Lake, marking the first time the spillway was used since the reservoir was completed in 1964. The power of water sliced open the ground below the spillway, exposing more than 110-million year old cretaceous limestone, fossils and even dinosaur footprints, unearthing a geological wonder.
Gorge tour staff will lead students down through the Gorge, highlighting features that correlate to your curriculum. Students will hike 1.25 miles along exposed early cretaceous limestone formations, follow aquifer waters coursing through the Gorge as springs, channels and waterfalls, and see dinosaur footprints.
