Park at the Palo Duro Canyon Amphitheatre off of State Highway Park Road 5 and walk to the Western most point of the parking lot away from the theatre to find the trailhead.

would not rate it easy. it is easy to get to. close to entrance. Park at viewpoint to the right, hike down about 1.5 miles for part 1. Then it is another 1.5 to 2 miles to the amphitheater. There are nicer hikes in the Canyon , nevertheless this is a good one, not to be missed

Portion of trail closed 3pm-12am but it’s too hot by then anyway. Lots of intersecting trails not marked. Definitely good for beginners though. If you find the trail too difficult you may have made a wrong turn.

Much higher elevation than the lighthouse trail and other popular trails. My vizsla handled the trail just fine but I would only recommend very athletic dogs for this trail.

This trail is fun! From serence quiet sections, to walking ridges with a big of challenge (I have a fear of heights), I really enjoyed this trail. This was my afternoon hike, after having done the Lighthouse trail in the morning. Pretty easy even with some elevation changes.

I liked the trail. I started in the ampitheater parking lot and hiked up and back. Took about 2.5 hours. the steepest grades were in the first couple of tenths of a mile. some parts of the trail had quite a bit of rubble rock on it and one must watch their footing. But the views were awesome.

Great trail. DO NOT DO WITH DOGS. Way too rocky, we took our dog and realized too late in. Lots of elevation changes, not too challenging for humans but can be for dogs. And we have a 50lb pit bull mix.
