Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

This trail in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park offers dramatic views of the mountains, foothills and desert landscape.

Parked at the trail head of Frijoles Ranch. Started my hike on the paved trail to Manzanita springs. After that the trail winds trough desert landscape with numerous desert wildflowers in the early fall, The trail ends up at the base of the mountains where I saw the springs.

Returned to the parking area on the other loop of the trail.
