We did the GSL and Little Fox Canyon Loop, rather than Capitol Peak. The GSL is a great trail for hiking for biking. The Little Fox loop has more vegetation and the horse flies were a constant nuisance. Nice views though.
I should note that GSL is hiking and biking, while Capitol Peak is biking only.

GSL Trail in Palo Duro State Park is a great trail to hike. 3.1 miles and back to make this 6 to 7 mile hike a great experience. Moderate to Difficult ... I would take your hiking sticks and 3 to 4 bottles of water in June.

Simply stunning run. Some technical sections, but overall good footing.

All trails within the park are fun rides.

This was a beautiful, scenic trail through the canyon. It had a few technical spots in the first mile. Has a spot where you can lock up your bike and climb up to Lighthouse Rock. The view is worth it. Bring plenty of water on this ride; the canyon gets hot.
