Carrizo Auto Tour Carrizo Canyon

Carrizo Creek is often called "A Prairie Oasis" and is one of the only three perennial streams on the Comanche National Grassland.


The east fork of Carrizo Creek flows through this small canyon graced by juniper and cottonwood trees.

American Indian petroglyphs in the images of mountain sheep, elk and deer can be found along the canyon walls. A variety of wildlife, especially birds, can be seen in the early morning or before sunset.
