Description

Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Long, challenging trail with very good views of the Franklin Mountains and the Rio Grande Valley.

I have hiked this trail several times but only in sections since it is so long. You can start from either the south parking or the north parking lot. I'd suggest leaving a car at both if possible so you can hike point-to-point if you want a shorter, 3.5 mile hike. The trail has very good views of the surrounding areas and has many beautiful wildflowers during the summer. Be aware that bikers use this trail a lot.
