Caprock Canyons State Park is a step back in time. Dramatic red rock cliffs rise over 1,000 feet. Below, Red River, the longest river in North America that doesn’t originate from the mountains, snakes its way through the canyon, continuously carving. About a mile after entering the park is the information center with interpretative exhibits.

One of the park’s major attractions is the Caprock Canyons State Park Trailway. A former railroad originally built in the 1920s and abandoned in the 1980s, is now 64-miles of incredible trail. Over 40 bridges, trestles and tunnels make the drive a historical wonder and lined with the stunning beauty of redrock cliffs makes this one of Texas’s best bike trails. The trail is also open to walkers, hikers and horseback riding. Take advantage of the Park’s shuttle.
