Just a few minutes from downtown Amarillo is a place to step out of the daily routine and imagine a different time. More than 600 acres of rolling grasslands are threaded with nature trails offering a sense of isolation and tranquility. Discover delicate wildflowers amidst knee-high grasses, huge cottonwoods, and a magnificent bluff. Slow down enough to spot a horned lizard cross the trail, a hawk circling overhead, or a quail's nest hidden beneath a bush. Picture the native people who camped here for centuries before settlers came through on their westward trek.
There is a place where you can reconnect with the timeless rhythm of the natural world and ponder the impact of civilization. At the same time, consider whether your great grandchildren will be able to experience first hand these same wonders of nature.
The place is Wildcat Bluff Nature Center. Named by early cowboys for a den of wildcats that lived under the bluff, it is also the site of a branch of the historic Gregg-Marcy Wagon Trail from Santa Fe to Fort Smith where wagon ruts are still visible today. It is a place of inspiration, a place for people to embrace the spirit of the land by exploring the natural magic of the Texas Panhandle.
