Good wide trail with stations of the cross and very good views of the Franklin Mountains and Mexico

The trails winds its way up the mountain with several stopping places with crosses and other religious artifacts. On top of the mountain is a very large statue of Christ. This hike provides good views of the Franklin Mountains, El Paso, and Mexico.

It is best to hike this trail with a group to be on the safer side.
