Easy trail. Nice views. NO water. They sometimes bring water out to certain areas but don't depend on it. No small creeks. Good challenge though. Tunnel is pretty cool especially the bats!

Great views. Did both the lower and upper loop. Took 6 hours because some directions were confusing on top of the mountain but that kinda made it fun. The rangers said the ferns weren't really out yet but we thought they were amazing. God is definitely there in the peace and quiet of the springs. Lay back on a big rock and close your eyes and experience all your problems drift away. Amazing park with good trails.

AWESOME canyon park for Texas! Not too big, but plenty of room to get away from modern life. Great trails too, watch for water and don't hike too fast! You can easily do the main trails in this park in a day. Do yourself a favor though and take the Upper Canyon Trail. Amazing views and Fern Cave is so beautiful!

Instead of the lower trail be a little adventures and take the 7 mile canyon rim view trail, unbelievable view on the mile long section that runs along the top of the canyon with great half way point to stop at for lunch, Fern cave. Be warned you will do some very steep ascent for a small section right after fern cave and at the end of the trail there is a equally quick decline but doable for anyone in shape or willing to take their time. Trail can occasioanlly make you wonder if its vanished but trail markers will relief any nervousness every half mile or so.

This was the first day of our hiking trip to the Caprock Canyons State Park and we took the lower canyon loop trail as a warmup on Friday afternoon, before tackling the upper canyon trail on Saturday. Nice easy hike with only a few hills.
