Nice and easy trail that often crosses the Little Red River giving lots of glimpses at the layers of gypsum. It's worth the few minutes it takes to get on the Mesa spur trail just to go up to the first ledge and take in the view.

loved our first visit to Caprock Canyon. We did the lower trail our first time out and finished the day with lunch at the amphitheater. Enjoyed it very much and look forward to going back soon.
