I live within a short driving distance and frequent the park very regularly. I also studied the canyon in many different aspects while attending West Texas A&M.

The park is full of adventure and has great trails for hiking / biking.

Stop by the gift shop as you come in the park to familiarize yourself.

Great for kids and adults!

Any trip to the Texas Panhandle area is incomplete without seeing the Palo Duro Canyon. No ... it's not THE Grand Canyon, but it's spectacular in its own right and well worth the time to go see. Driving through is easy (during the off season) and you see a lot from your car.

We recommend the jeep tour to complement what you can see on your own. And we recommend going in the off season to avoid the spring/summer crowds.

Passing through Texas we detoured south of Amarillo to check out this state park and were so glad we did! It really is a beautiful piece of nature with sweeping views and much to offer a nature lover. I wish we could have stayed longer. There is so much to explore! Little wary of snakes, though!

Palo Duro canyon is an amazing place. Quiet, peaceful, magical. The hiking trails are sublime and there are great places to camp. However, there is some construction going on now that, while will ultimately improve the place, takes a bit of the beauty away. Regardless, for those travelling through the area or locals who have never been there, Palo Duro canyon is a great escape from the boring flatness of the Texas panhandle.

WOW !!!!! my first trip here and I hope not my last I don't have to many words to describe how I felt. Small like an ant in the in the vast expanse of this great universe. they have camping areas, and years old cow cabins to stay in, and multiple hiking trails, and the view well there are no words for that at all. you just must see to believe.
