Reviews

The botanical gardens and cactus museum are a beautiful showcase of the plants of the Chihuahuan Desert. Easy enough trail for the whole family. Make sure to visit the bird blind on the outside of the fence as well. The volunteers in the Powell Visitor Center are very helpful and will answer any questions you have.
