It’s a longer drive than, say, the hyper-local Four C Trail, but it’s the closest Southwest-style canyon country to the Texas Triangle. Retrace the footsteps of Comanche bands who hid here in the 1800s on a 5.4-mile out-and-back to a red-and-white-striped hoodoo that rises more than 300 feet above the chaparral.
