    Smile I think he meant the Trailway, not the State Park.

    If you can find the little town of South Plains, north of Floydada, you've made it. It's totally flat on the rail bed but you pass through some cool scenery. All you really want to see on this trail is the rolling ranchland, feral hogs (mean guys), and the bats leaving Clarity Tunnel on a nice summer night. The tunnel is 12 miles in from South Plains. My friend Paul and I did an overnighter.

    Entrance:

    First bridge:

    Barn owls about 3 miles in:

    Some typical scenery:

    Clarity Tunnel:

    Bats:

    Overall, worth a ride. But the view gets kinda plain after the tunnel as you head east.

    Maybe not the entire trailway but the 24-mile round trip to the tunnel is doable. It's a slight downhill grade to the tunnel and, unfortunately, a slight uphill grade back to the start. Everything east of Turkey is flat farmland.

    Here's a recent article on the entire trailway; http://www.tpwmagazine.com/archive/2008/oct/ed_1/

    Give it a try and post pictures when you're done.
