Moderate hike for me. The views up there are breathtaking. I came on a Thursday were they said it was close but they are always upen for hikes. The store is the one closed.
First time in El Paso but I loved it

on Thousand Steps Trail

Extremely beautiful views. New to the area, first trail hiked here. Great work out. I loved using the metal chains to climb up and down seemingly impassible rock formations. Not for children.

Beautiful scenery! Great to do early in the AM. Some parts were strenuous, but overall good hike! Breathtaking view at the highest elevation.

I have done this hike many times, I even went last year with a yoga group. Dare to dream, try to go when there is a ranger trip, you learn about the history,

Took in the Tom Mays trail and the Upper Sunset Loop Trail and it was awesome. Getting in some quality exercise and the big plus is taking in nature. Wow.!

my kids loved it, short but gets you pumped. My 2 year old never left trail, very nice guided.
definitely be back and take advantage of museums

It’s moderated! I enjoy that hiking along with my 6yr old he made it to the top we had two brake one going up and one coming down.

Beautifully kept trail and an easy hike up! Took me and a friend about an hour and a half total to get up and back. Awesome views at the top! The incline at the very beginning feels tough, but after that it’s gradual smooth sailing. A must do if in the area.

Great trail! Not to be taken lightly though. My friend and I took our 3 dogs expecting it to be much easier than it was and ended up using all of our water on our dogs and not much on our selves. But still a great hike and amazing views!

Great two hour hike in late afternoon.

nice for the kids

Well-maintained trail with spectacular views of the mountains. The drive to the trailhead is worth the trip alone. 95% of the trail is in full sun, but there are patches of shade to rest in. Dog friendly and lots of birds.

I am visiting this area for work and was told about this trail. I am new to trail running and I have grown to love it. This trail is fun and challenging with great views!

Done this trail twice, it is considered a beginner trail but still gives you a bit of a thrill. A few climbs and descents, quick turns, really fun!

Great hike with a variety of scenery. Trail starts in the desert and scrub, but by the halfway point you're in a nice forested area with plenty of shade. Great wildlife to photograph, as well!

We had so much fun looking for the petroglyphs! You don't have to look too hard. It's a mile up a hill. The trail is rocky, but we were going slow anyway looking at them. The trailhead offers generous parking. Flush toilets. There's a $5 charge to be paid at the office. National Park passes accepted.

pretty neat, nothing strenuous just cool

I like to walk this trail after work in the morning El Paso was lucky to have such a pretty trail. Right now the desert Willows are in bloom and are very showy. Like anything in the desert go early or you will be hot!

great trail for beginner's pretty tough incline going up so be ready for that but coming down is worth it almost didnt have to peddle and kept my hands close to the breaks haha had fun

This trail was very well marked and easy to follow. Lots of stairlike formations which makes it a little easier just tough on the knees.

What a gem! The views are fantastic wherever you look! The hike was challenging at times with large rocks to navigate. Be prepared by wearing good hiking boots as part of the trail is quite slippery due to sand and small stones. Numerous points along the trail to stop and appreciate! Found that going to the left or clockwise is preferable. Hope to return again for sure

Great morning hike!! Some areas were a little challenging for my dog, but overall it's a beautiful hike! Lots of shaded areas to stop and rest and take in the amazing views!

Beautiful hike. It was crazy to see such greenery in the desert. Some great views. Hike was fairly moderate. At the start of the trail if you go right first it is a little more challenging cause u are climbing and if you go left first it is a steady climb but subtle.

Took my dogs out on an easy walk. No shade and not real busy but worth a walk. My dogs had a great time with this walk.
