Great hike with great views. There are a lot of people though.
This trail is just outside of the McKittirck Canyon Visitors Center. It lis a .8 mile loop through the desert scrub to get you acquainted with the plants of the area.
Great Hike for west texas. It is an easy hike with minimal elevation gain....definitely go in the fall when the leaves and foliage are changing colors and you will be amazed!
