Hikers have a chance to enjoy the cool rustle of leaves along the canyon floor while hiking the Paseo del Rio Trail. Mesquite, western soap berry, willow trees, as well as the “shade master”—the cottonwood tree—canopy much of the trail, making for a pleasant hike on hot days. Translated as the “stroll of the river,” the Paseo del Rio Trail follows the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River along its riparian course. Early mornings and evenings make for great birding where a number of migratory songbirds can be spotted. During a wet spring, wildflowers, including blackfoot daisy, star thistle, and paperflower, will blanket the trail.
