“Starts out easy and gets much harder with steep, rocky sections and multiple river crossings, with all trail surfaces.”— Lee Oles
Family Friendly There is a playground, camping, fishing, and trails from hard to easy.
- You'll cross the creek many times, be mindful of the wildlife and bison. Take your own water and food and supply for mechanicals.
- Take note of the some of the similar names in the park. There is the Canyon Rim Trail and connecting to it is also two Lower Canyon Trail sections. Which is quite confusing if you ask me. One of those trails is hike-only (not mapped) and the other is open to horses, bikes, and hikers (mapped).
Trail markings are there but the trails seem to disappear as you can see where I turned around in several places. This included several different trails and loops, as well as some paved road, single and doubletrack.
There are multiple river crossings where flash flooding is a possibility. Expect some challenging sections of 16% or highger grade on the trails and road.
In the area, there is a rails-to-trails on the various trails that make up the Caprock Canyons Trailway.
