Amazing Place

The Buffalo Track Canyon Nature Trail is an amazing place. This short trail takes you through semi-arid terrain, then trough spots with tropical plants, caves, creeks, petroglyphs and hill tops with amazing views. The experience changes with the changing seasons. This nature trail is rich with history and wildlife viewing opportunities.
