Along the 180-mile route of the Carrizo Auto Tour, you can explore pioneer homesteads and the Santa Fe Trail, interpret Plains Indian rock art, and walk where sharks once swam. In addition, the spectacular landscape provides varied and abundant wildlife habitat and excellent bird watching opportunities, especially at sunup and sundown when animals are most active.
Plan on approximately 5-8 hours to drive the loop and visit the major sites along the route.
