Hike a high-desert meadow with the beautiful Franklin Mountains as a backdrop. The hike is through a High-Desert Meadow. In the spring, poppies sometimes bloom. Although the trail is listed as a 1/2 mile loop. there are several trails splitting off the loop, and 2 or 3 hours could easily be spent wandering around and looking at the plants.

A small nature walk to experience some of El Paso's desert wildlife and plants. Home to a large number of small lizards as well. A good place for children to see many different things in a short time, just be watchful of snakes.

Nice easy walk. Lots so beautiful scenery. Wildlife everywhere. Saw a rabbit, many birds, butterflies & even a rattlesnake ON THE TRAIL! This would be great to take visitors who wanted to see a little scenery & minimal physical exertion.
