Big Bend Ranch State Park's Closed Canyon is most spectacular short hike (1.4 mile roundtrip!) and a quick adventure. Definitely scenic, definitely a "must do" if you're in the area. It is a narrow slot canyon with interesting light play on the rock walls and the texture of the rocks underneath. Plus, in very short stretches, there's sometimes scrambling involved which makes this hike....an adventure!
