a foot a snow in Lubbock, but the trails in PD are clear and perfect. Excellent set of trails, especially Comanche and Rock Garden. Rode the Rim trail for the first time. Beautiful views. History

Getting forecast...

The linchpin in the Palo Duro trail system, a must-do to get an amazing view of the Lighthouse.

Description

This is one of the most heavily used trails in Palo Duro. It's frequented by hikers, bikers, and equestrians. It can get quite crowded on a bluebird weekend. You can take the trail to the end to see the famous Lighthouse hoodoo, or you can use it to hook up with the Givens, Spicer & Lowry Trail and the Little Fox Loop. It is a necessity if you are trying to make a loop.

The trail can get pretty sandy in places and it has a few dry creek crossings that can be tricky when loose. This is a wide singletrack, but I would not call it double. For the most part, this trail is relatively easy and beginner friendly, BUT it does have some sections that might need to be walked for a first-timer.

Trail is geared toward family-type hikes - very open and flat, sandy in parts. Recommend taking your bike somewhere else. MTB alternates exist though! 3mi
