Palo Duro Canyon State Park
Everywhere You Should Stop Along Route 66’s Panhandle Expanse
Home to the second largest canyon in the country, Palo Duro Canyon State Park is well worth a 30-minute southbound detour. Cruise into the park for a quick look at what’s considered the Grand Canyon of Texas, and if you have the time, lace up your boots and spend a few hours exploring the rugged terrain. Breathe in the fresh air as you traverse trails on foot, bike, or horseback, or pack it in for night under the stars at one of the area’s many campsites (or glampsites).
