  • It's a great thing to do to get an overview of the entire area. It's not like the White Mountains, and not supposed to be. The hills you see are so unique. Unlike New England or Montana. It's getting ...  read more »
  • This may be a "free" attraction, but it's not that exciting. You can see a long way but it's not that pretty of a view. And if you're driving, well, please don't look around too much. 
  • There are views, and passing between the mountains of El Paso in parked cars or at places. From the top of the mountain overlooking the city of El Paso. There are Elephant stone shaped like elephants.

  • Nice little drive up the front of the mountain. There various places to stop and take pictures. At the highest point, there is a small walk around rest area with a tremendous view of El Paso, if you wait for sunset it is breathtaking (if you like that sort of thing LOL). The road can become a little dangerous with the traffic and the people trying to cross the road. Parking is limited.
  • Love this place. City lights looks awesome. You can even see the Wells Fargo building that is on Downtown. There is not a lot of parking spot, around 15 I would say. There is a troca at night selling coffee, ice cream y mas.
  • I absolutely love coming here. It's a great place to simply relax. While the view during the day is nice, you really need to come here at night to enjoy all the city lights. You can just see the vast enormity of El Paso and see where the border begins and how massive Juarez is as well. It's really a breath taking view.
  • Great overlook, el paso is pretty
  • Every waking day in El Paso, I find myself wondering, "You know what would be amazing? If I could see all the endless miles of brown dirt, ugly degrading architecture, homeless people begging for quarters and Walmart shopping bags blowing freely in the air majestically from one place that has not one, not two, but maybe 3 total parking spots." Well El Pasoans, look no further. Not only that, but the view goes so far you can actually see decapitated bodies hanging from their feet from the bridges of Juarez from this overlook. Nothing says romantic more than standing on this cliff with your significant other, only to be interrupted by a smelly hobo asking for some money for drugs and getting your face molested by trash delivered courtesy of the nonstop wind of El Paso.
