This tour lets you truly enjoy Palo Duro Canyon. You start at the rim and go all the way down to the bottom. The ranch roads are rough but enjoyable.

You can book one-, two- or three hour tours. Cash only! This is on private property, outside the state park, but still great views. "Roads" are in place, and you get to stop and get out to enjoy the views. We had a talkative driver...More
