This is a difficult trail, but completely worth it! This trail can lead you to the top or Ranger Peak, but can also lead you to the B-36D crash site, that surprisingly, very few people in El Paso know about. The trail does get a...More

I took the trailhead where Stanton Dr dead ends right in the city. I have to admit that I didn't finish the trail. I hiked as far as I knew my fitness level could handle then turned back. Wonderful scenery and a great way to...More

We did this trail in a Saturday morning. It is a very nice uphill trail. Some are moderate climbs and you might have to use both hands to grab onto the rocks. However is well worth it. You can hike down or take the tramway...More

This is a challenging hike and requires sturdy shoes. Beware if snakes early in the morning. This connects up with other trails in the area for the adventurous.

This trail takes you up to where you can look down over a big section of El Paso. Even more interesting; it takes you to where you can view the site of a 1950s plane wreck and the homegrown memorial to the victims of that...More

A few years ago, my good friend CG-L from Switzerland and I spent one morning on an adventure: we motored & parked at the base of the Wyler Arial Tramway, already high up on the Eastside of the Franklin Mountains. Before going up in the...More

I hiked to the top of this trail the way it's marked and through a different harder but faster way. The latter has a lot of climbing up tall and rugged rocks. I'm not going to lie, I had to sit and rest once almost...More

I'm a local. This trial is probably the best centrally located trial. It gives you a wonderful view of our maintains and the whole region. Great way to spend 3 hrs, but be mindful of our desert climate and make sure you bring enough water...More
