Palisades Canyon Loop is a 8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near El Paso, TX that features a river. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking and walking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This trail is part of a series of trails that head towards Bliss Army and up into Franklin Mountain Park offering you the ability to connect with other trails.
This is an easy trail to do with the family if you do not go up the mountain. You start at the end point at E Robinson Ave and finish at the Stanton St entrance (next the big water tank), then return. Small Canyon but very nice, if you have time, get off the trail and explore it, you will enjoy. We decided to go up on Thousand Steps Trail and continue to Ranger Peak, sat on the bench and enjoyed the nice view. We returned by the ridge trial passing the antennas (Comanche Peak) and took the road down.
Easy trail to grab that doesn't require a parking pass (cost money). The trail loosely follows a creek towards and into the Franklin Mountain Park and appears to connect with trails within Franklin Mnt. Park system.
