“This section of the Caprock Canyons Trailway runs approximately 10 miles from Estelline to Parnell Station.”— Connad Higgins
The easternmost part of the Trailway, the Plains Junction Trail, can be accessed from Parnell Station or Estelline. A parking area is available at either end of the trail and a backcountry campsite area is available at Parnell Station. Water availability at trailheads and on trail is unreliable so runners and backpackers should plan ahead regarding water needs and pack plenty of water. The trail is open in most areas so wind and sun exposure can be concerns.
