  • Great spot to visit to see the true beauty of El Paso! The view is amazing and a great place to take people that have never been to the city. It’s a quick and easy drive and you get a clear view of the border and see how close the city of Juarez is to the US. Lots of photo ops if you like taking pictures. Don’t forget to bring your padlock to symbolize your love on the railing of the stairs!
  • This is one of the best views in El Paso. It overlooks Mexico and it beautiful. The road is shutdown for foot traffic at times which makes this even better. Its a slightly challenging spot to run and is full of really friendly people. I take my dog here so does a lot of others and the kids like it too.
  • If you go to El Paso you owe it to yourself to make the 15 minute drive up and down the scenic drive. This drive offers just stunning views of the El Paso area and beyond. Regardless of whether you go day or night you won't be disappointed. Historical markers in the area tie the past to the present and give you a deeper understanding of the history of the area. The love locks were an unexpected twist that everyone will appreciate.
  • Went there before sunset. The views from here are beautiful. You can see views of downtown, freeways and overpasses, etc. The mountains look great with the sun setting behind them. The only thing is the roads to get up there are steep, winding and kinda narrow.
  • This is the spot where some of this city's most iconic photographs have been taken from. You get views that stretch from part of the northeast, the far east, Juarez and a little bit of the west side. No restrooms though, beware.
