Explore the Caprock Canyons Trailway for a day trip or for a longer excursion. The trail is open to hikers, bikers and horseback riders.

The Trailway stretches from the west, at South Plains on top of the Caprock Escarpment, to the east at Estelline in the Red River Valley. It spans three counties (Floyd, Briscoe and Hall), crosses 46 bridges, and passes through Clarity Tunnel, one of the last active railroad tunnels in Texas.

Hello everyone! I'm going to make a Supported attempt, Thursday, 3/14/2024 with my husband as crew. I'm planning to take pictures and observations throughout the day, with the hopes of putting together a good race report--Arthur Cayer has set a pretty high bar on that account. Thank you to everyone who's gone before!
