Description

The Oxbow Trail can be accessed from Tampico Siding or Turkey Depot. A parking area is available at either end of the trail and a backcountry campsite area is available at Tampico Siding. There is no marked camping area in Turkey Depot according to the Caprock Canyons Trialway handout provided by the park. Water availability at trailheads and on trail is unreliable so hikers and backpackers should plan ahead regarding water needs and pack plenty of water. There is an Allsups in Turkey Depot where hikers and backpackers can get water and food. The trail is open in most areas so wind and sun exposure can be concerns.
