Frisco’s Secret Waterfall

A Texas secret waterfall in Limestone Quarry Park  has been found and despite being small, it is still Instagram worthy and therapeutic to visit according to a Local Profile article from May 31. They say, 

“The waterfall trickles into the calm, moss-green water of the creek, providing a picturesque departure from the hustle and bustle of the workweekˆ and a respite from the Texas heat.

We think it best to inform you right now that this is not Texas’s Niagara Falls. The Limestone Quarry Park waterfall is small. It’s also intermittent, streaming for five to 10 minutes, and then stopping for another 15 or so. However, it is still a beautiful photo opportunity and is surrounded by plenty of dry rock, so you can leave behind your personal belongings before exploring the rest of the park.

Limestone Quarry Park in Frisco is one of Collin County’s hidden gems, providing photo opportunities, a safe haven from the summer heat and plenty of space to explore and traverse at your leisure. And it’s right in our backyards.”

Limestone Quarry Park and its waterfall are also accessible to different cities as bike trails planned over from 2001 have recently finished to connect different cities with the park in the middle of the trail according to a Community Impact article from May 13 which reports, 

“The city of Frisco is officially connected to Plano via the Six Cities Hike & Bike Trail. Crews recently completed 0.34 miles of trail on the Six Cities Trail connector, which is part of the Collin County Regional Trail Master Plan. The trail connects Frisco to trails in Plano, McKinney, Allen, Richardson and Garland.

“This is a short trail that creates a really big connection, so that’s why it’s so important,” Ricardo Sanchez, Frisco Parks & Recreation senior planner, said in a Frisco news video.

The trail connects to Plano in the southeast corner of the city near Custer Road under the Sam Rayburn Tollway. Residents can access the Taychas Trail at Limestone Quarry Park, located at 1230 Maltby Drive, Frisco, and then head south to find the connection to Plano.

“There was a lot of coordination. It was a really good team effort between city staff, city of Plano, Texas Department of Transportation, North Texas Transit Authority and the public as well,” Sanchez said.

To access the waterfall in Limestone Quarry Park, after arriving at the playground in the park, head down behind the playground where there is a dirt trail that leads to West Rowlett Creek.
