We visited the park and found the trails were closed due to active hunting season. The tower is a good place to visit with a 10 mile view. We did not visit the caverns on this trip.

Attractions on the way between Killeen amd Palo Duro Canyon (1 Replies)
Hello, I am flying to Killeen for ~3 days for Labour day and would like to visit Palo Duro Canyon and Caprock Canyon. I do realize that it is about 6-6.5 hours drive to them. Are there any outdoor attractions to see on the way? The only thing that I found somewhat on the way Longhorn Cavern State Park. Another option I am considering is Big Bend National Park. Any attractions on the way there? P.S. I've already been to San Antonio, Austin & Dallas a few years ago, on this trip...More

You won't have much time for sightseeing on either route. Not exactly an outdoor attraction but on the way to the Panhandle there's Fort Chadbourne north of Bronte, a U.S. Army 19th century frontier fort. Other places of interest are the historic section of Buffalo Gap, Frontier Texas museum in Abilene and Buddy Holly museum in Lubbock. Going to Big Bend there is Fort McKavett west of Menard and Fort Stockton, also 19th century US Army frontier forts.
