    Nice little hike for some exercise. I don't see why people say it's messy. It was really clean even for being on a highway. It has a working windmill and stock tank if you want to see how ranches made...  more »

    There is literally nothing here. It's a waste of time. You can see better nature, and plants in Palo Duro Canyon, or anywhere in the country. On my visit the employee were arguing with one another. Su...  more »

    I had never been to Wildcat Bluff before and I didn't know what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised! We will definitely come back soon. I can't wait to hike the longer trails, but even with my 2 year old in tow, there was plenty to see and do. She played in the HUGE sand pit for over an hour and would have stayed longer. There is quite a bit of concrete sidewalks to walk on, plus the regular hiking trails. Well worth the low admission cost.

    I was visiting a friend for a few days and this was my first trip to Amarillo. We hiked a couple of the trails and explored for about three hours. The wildlife and veggetation was really something to see! After our hike we took pictures of some of the flowers and played with the interactive sundial and stone maze! We had a great time! It was just something nice to do outdoors in addition to seeing the canyon.
