  • My son and little brother loved it. We made it all the way up to the first cave. Please make sure to take shoes with good grip, water, sunscreen, and maybe a simple little first aid kit because the hike down can be tricky! Awesome exercise, good views. Will be returning.
  • A great place to go hiking and several trails to choose from! Most are fairly steep and covered in loose rock from the floods a few years back. Once you hit the top of a ridge though the hike is all worth it!
  • Love these mountains!! Great hikes and tramway. Just need family friendly activities and events.
  • Nice local hiking. Very easy to access from El Paso in any vehicle. Well market trails. Dog friendly. Beautiful views from top of North Mount Franklin.
  • Amazing place for all kinds of people as long as you're not afraid of heights, it has an amazing view of El Paso Texas, and ciudad Juárez México
