DISTANCE: 105 miles DIRECTIONS: Start at Caprock Canyons, just north of Quitaque on FM 1065, and drive south to Texas Highway 86. Follow 86 west through Silverton to Texas Highway 207, then head north. At FM 285, proceed west, then head north on Interstate 27. Finally, turn onto Texas Highway 217, near Canyon, and go east to Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
We’re not jealous that a certain canyon two states to the west gets all the fanfare, but the uninitiated should see the majesty of Caprock Canyons and Palo Duro Canyon.
