Isolated peaks in Dona Ana county. Very quiet and scenic place. Very good views of the surrounding countryside.

Drove from El Paso to cox Peak this morning. About 45 miles from El Paso. The roads to the mountains are in good condition. Did not hike up the mountain but hiked around the base and enjoyed the views and the cacti. There is not a trail to the top of the mountains and scrambling up the mountain sides is required.
