Franklin Mountains State Park
Take a virtual hike through miles and miles of trails that wind through the largest urban State Park in the US located in El Paso, TX while enjoying inspiring vistas from its various ridges, canyons and at times, nerve wracking trails along cliffs. When you reach the peak of North Franklin Mountain, its highest point at 7200 ft elevation, you can take a breather while overlooking the US/Mexico International border into Chihuahua Mexico to the south, Sunland Park, NM to the east, the bustling city of El Paso as it snuggly wraps around this dominating feature with the beauty of the Chihuahuan Desert beyond.
Along this journey you will encounter a variety of plant and wildlife from blooming cacti along the Upper Sunset Trail to bats in the Aztec Caves along with various other creeping, crawling critters up to Ranger Peak, through McKelligon Canyon and out to the abandoned Tin Mines. The Thousand Steps trail leads to debris from airplane wreckage and a variety of other trails lead to different adventures and discoveries. This project unfolded over two years of weekly all weather hikes from scorching summer sun to harsh blizzards, all of which reveal the true diversity of a high-desert mountain environment.
