  • This is a beautiful twisty road that runs along the side of the mountain. There is an overlook that shows you the city. At night, El Paso is very pretty with the lights sparkling in the crisp desert a...  more »
  • El Paso is not a very pretty city, and seen from above it was even worse. The overlook at night was pretty and romantic. The people are so friendly; one couple let me take their picture silhouetted ag...  more »
  • Went up scenic drive and a gate was drawn closing the road to traffic. No explanation and we were there during the time the sign at the entry said it was open. Very disappointing.  more »

  • Great view of the city and Mexico. The main two parking sections were pretty crowded. I found and area near the west side of the drive and climbed up the natural trail about 3/4 of the way to the top and got some great pics. Went up just before sunset and came down just after.
  • its a nice little attraction. only issue is the parking sucks. but the view is cool! i'd definitely go back. make sure to take quarters to look thru the binoculars or take your own.
  • This overlook is beautiful with views as far as the eye can see. You really see just how intertwined these cities are and the border just fades away. They have arrows pointing to different land marks around the area and viewers so you can see it closer. Great place to go and see some sights and get some fresh air. Limited parking is available and a couple of land marks are near the mountain side where traffic drives by so be very careful.
  • Every time I pass by El Paso, I go there and take pictures, love the view anytime of the day. Usually is crowded but you can find a parking spot if you are patient. Love they way the two counties appear to be one
  • This place is a joke. I went up this hill and it was all cloudy! I was like, "man, I can't even see a single thing yo!" so then I'm like, "what the hell gives!" I wanned to go look at things from up above and the clouds were in the way of literally everything. This place is not all it's cracked up to be.
