Runner Notes

The trail is wide and well maintained in most areas, but water may be a concern so be sure to plan ahead when considering a trail run, especially in the warmer months.

Description

The Los Lingos Trail can be accessed from Quitaque or Monk's crossing. A parking area is available at either end of the trail and a backcountry campsite area is available near the Los Lingos Creek. 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.

In 1992, TPWD acquired a donation of 64.25 miles of a 1920's era railroad right-of-way stretching from the Western trailhead at South Plains atop the Caprock Escarpment to the Eastern trailhead at Estelline in the Red River Valley. The Caprock Canyons Trailway opened in 1993 as part of the national Rails-to-Trails program converting abandoned railroad right-of-way to hiking, biking, running and equestrian trails.
