The Park offers many activities including hiking, biking, horseback riding and boating. There are Class II and III rapids here and guided tours can be booked in the neighboring towns. And any of those activities should be used to explore the fascinating canyons, plateaus, rivers and waterfalls created by the real star here — the geology. It’s incredibly beautiful and you’ll be awestruck by the effects of volcanic activity and erosion. This unique landscape is home to over 300 species of birds including Bell’s Vireo, Vermillion Flycatcher and Zone-tailed hawk. Located in the Trans-Pecos Vegetation Area, there are four types of plant habitats, riparian, mixed desert, desert grassland and juniper woodland. Native Americans legends said that the Great Spirit placed all the rocks here after the world was created, and you will see why.
