Trail Ride / Location Details

Grand Canyon of Texas
The second largest canyon in the country lies in the heart of the Texas Panhandle. Visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park; experience the canyon's rugged beauty and enjoy its colorful history.

Horseback riding
Ride on trails through 1,500 acres set aside for horseback riding. You can also share two other trails with hikers and mountain bikers.

Bring your own horses (original Coggins papers required). Park your trailer at the equestrian campground. Bring a water bucket for your horse.

Take a guided tour. Old West Stables on the canyon floor leads tours for the whole family to Timber Creek Canyon. They also offer souvenirs and a snack bar. Reservations required; call (806) 488-2180.

Corrals: There are four large connected pipe corrals about 24 by 24 feet in the shape of a square. There are no chains or latches to secure the pen gate with, so be sure to bring a chain to close the gate. No more than two horses are allowed in each pen. These are available on a  first come first serve basis. The corrals are not covered so there is no shade. You may also bring portable panels or tie your horses to the trailer or tie to the outside of the pipe pens. The park asks that you do not tie your horse to trees and that you do not leave your horse unattended.

A water facet is located directly in front of the horse pens and a second water facet is
located in the center of the equestrian campsite area along with a water trough. A second water trough
is also located in the day use equestrian parking area.
