The cave loop trail is more open and flat than the Canyon Trail, and can be done by just about anyone. A lot of free standing "tent rocks" and the cave is there as well.

This is secondary to slot canyon trail, nothing super exciting, you get to see an ancient manmade cave. You are already there, you might as well see it.

This is the shorter of the two trails located at the Tent Rocks. The trail takes you by a hoodoo that has been hollowed out to be used as a dwelling or meeting house for the early inhabitants of the area.

This is definitely the preferred hike for those who may not be ready for a strenuous, uphill climb. The views are still spectacular as you stand in the shadows of mountainous beauty. Still--wear appropriate shoes for outdoor walking. Rocky roads are in store.

An easy hike with a cave and an opportunity to get some great pics of the cone shape Tent Rocks. Slippery sand in some places. Nice view of the surrounding mountains.

Not spectacular by any means but you should do it while you are there. The cave is more like a small hole in the face of the wall.

This trail is short and starts and ends back around at the parking lot. Do this one is you still want to hike some more after the slot Canyon hike.

We love New and unusual places to hike, and there's nothing like this in Texas that I've seen! It's like walking through crevices at the bottom of a desert ocean, a must see if in the Aera, limited visitors though due to parking so go...More
