When visiting Caprock Canyons State Park, be sure to check out the recently completed audio driving guide to the park. It's like having a tour guide on your own schedule and it's free! The audio guide is available for check-out, at the park headquarters, on tape or CD ($5 deposit).
There are 13 trails in all, (some still under construction), including 6 along the Trailway, which are each approximately 10 miles long and provide parking lots at each trailhead.
Water is usually available for animals along the trails, and some potable water is available at selected sites; but is it highly recommended that personal water is carried for each adventurer. The development of the trails change on a daily basis.
