A 21-mile drive across the High Plains and into the depths of Palo Duro Canyon. Most people quickly become bored by the flat, treeless terrain of the Texas Panhandle and respond by pressing harder on the gas pedal. But the High Plains hold notable exceptions to the monotonous terrain, the most famous being Palo Duro Canyon. Here the level plains, dotted with irrigated farms and cattle ranches, abruptly drop eight hundred feet into the ragged gash of the canyon. Special attractions include: Palo Duro Canyon State Park, “Texas” outdoor drama, Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, hiking, camping, mountain biking, scenic views. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
