The beauty of this area is awesome and God’s handiwork is evident everywhere you look. Please respect the beauty and leave no trash behind as you may hike to locate the sections on the day of the competitions. Respect the Hoodoos. Do not touch, sit on, or ride on them! Please do not attempt to approach the cattle or any wildlife. This is a raw and rugged country and there are hazards in and around the canyon area. Watch where you step! Poisonous snakes and other creatures live here. We are guests in their home! NO FIREARMS are allowed. Keep your pets on a leash! NO LOOSE PETS will be tolerated! The Texas Trials riders that have worked to make this a memorable event want you to enjoy yourself and the Canyon.  We hope that you have a great time!
