Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

We're looking to do a trip in the Texas Panhandle (Palo Duro, Caprock Canyon) from Dallas. I saw that the Wichita Wildlife Refuge is not too far from the route we will be taking.

Is this place worth driving about 2.5 hr out of our way (roundtrip)? Is it pretty (we are looking to do some say hiking)? It looks beautiful, but I know very little about that area.

Also, we would be taking this trip in the winter. Is the refuge accessible during February? Are the roads ever blocked for snow?

Thank you!

I live on the other side of the state so not sure, but checking with some friends. Maybe someone else?

it's a nice area and shouldn't be blocked for snow. Good hiking there as well. I can't speak to whether it's worth it for you, but it really is a gorgeous place.
