GUIDED HORSEBACK TRAIL RIDE
You'll see the beauty and ruggedness of Palo Duro Canyon State Park close up... We'll ride past Sad Monkey Mesa, the Catarina Caves, hoodoos, some of the canyon's Spanish Skirts, and along side the walls of the canyon — beautifully comprised of different layers & colors and revealing 230 million years of geologic history. Blooming cactus and wildflowers, 'tho seasonal, are typically abundant. Riders are often lucky enough to get a glimpse of some of the wildlife that's abundant in the canyon... mule deer, feral hogs, wild turkeys, road runners, aoudad sheep and sometimes, even a coyote, bobcat or diamondback rattle snake!
Fun for all ages, come see Woodrow the young gentle long horn! Trained to eat right out of your hand. Cattle feed is available for purchase in the Old West Stables gift shop for $2.00 a bag during normal business hours.
