Caprock Canyons State Park & Trailway
Home on the Range
Set in a remote, otherworldly part of West Texas, Caprock Canyons State Park edges the eastern portion of the Llano Estacado plateau. Red-rocked and ravine-filled, the park holds a herd of bison, among other wildlife. For day visitors and overnight campers, the park’s no-wake lake is a big draw but bikers will revel in the almost 90 miles of multi-use trails. The pathways, dotted with cliffs, drop-offs, steep climbs and harrowing descents, will put adrenaline junkies over the moon. The less bold can pedal along miles of scenic flatland, while Lower Canyon Trail is a 6.5 miles long circle that bridges the gap between two.
