“See the highs and lows of Caprock Canyons State Park in one run, with a refreshing stop at Fern Cave in the middle.”— Joseph Ellis
Head west and north, and descend to Fern Cave, where you'll usually find a spring of cold water trickling from the rock and forming a small pool.
Cool off and take a rest before beginning the return run along the Upper Canyon Trail and Canyon Loop Trail. These are largely level, flat trails, allowing you to observe the impressive landscape all around as you make your way back to the trailhead.
