Spring Canyon State Park is a day-use area associated with Rockhound State Park. It has a hiking trail called the Lover's Leap Trail. The sign at the trailhead said it was .5 miles but the trail is not well marked and it is hard to tell where the trail ends. People have walked past the .5 mile mark so it is easy to go farther. The trail is fairly steep and rocky in some places but the views are spectacular.

(For more information; see my Spring Canyon State Park Page).
