This was a great hike! I took my 10 year old along and he had no problem keeping up. When we got to the caves El Paso PD was there conducting extraction training. They took the time to explain what they were doing which my son loved. Shout out to our men and women in blue!

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

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.

Great hike . Lots of rocks to slip on so be careful! Near the top is a little steep but the peace at the top of the caves is worth it !

Great hike bring water n snacks
Took my 1 yr old pup on her first hike here, she did well. We did stop and rested on the way.

It was moderate for 3/4 of the trail but the end near the caves is extremely steep. I could not make it to the top. My anxiety and vertigo became severe and after several panic attacks I sat on a boulder while my husband explored the caves. With the hazardous rock laden trail and its steepness, and my panic induced stops, it took a total of three hours.

This trail is moderate for experienced hikers and thrill seekers.

Great challenging hike !!

Believe the "hard" review on this one. It's true. I can usually fly through a rated hard hike fairly easily, but this one gave me a run for my money! It is a STEEP climb with a lot of climbing on all fours. The views of the canyon and both sides of el paso are amazing, however. If you're in the right shape, I highly recommend it.
The chains look intimidating, but they're easy as long as ya stay close to the wall and go slow.

Good hike but the rocky trail surface is annoying and provides for a precarious trip down!

I can usually hike the “hard” trails no problem, but the Ron Coleman trail is certainly challenging! After hiking this it is now one of my favorite trails and I’m certainly coming back for more. Bring plenty of water and sturdy shoes. Also be mindful that there are small vertical “cliffs” that you need to ascend but the park provides chains to help you up. Keep your eye out for the big green collared lizards that live near the trail also! Fantastic trail.

Great quick hike! It's a bit challenging towards the top but the caves up there provide a cool respite :)

good hike last little bit is tough but it was worth it. I will be back with a flashlight to negotiate the actual mines

Awesome trail y’all!
I recommend anyone who tries this trail to please keep the following into account.

1. Have respect for nature ! ( emphasis on respect)
2. Be very aware of your surroundings and know your limits. Be smart & turn back if you can’t keep going.
3. Trail rated as hard, it is.
4. Be prepared with enough water and smart snacks to keep you going.
5.) keep an eye out for blue dots that pave the way, you can also use the AllTrails map, you will need it.

You’ll be hiking up hill a lot and eventually be reaching the peak of the mountain, the hike then switches between hiking along that and the side of the mountain.It’s important you follow the blue dots so that you can locate the trail you can get into danger if you don’t stay aware.

Have fun and may the mountain gods be with you. This hike definitely offers great views which aren’t meant for the faint of heart or those who are afraid of heights.
Be safe and have fun!
Love and peace !

You definitely need to hike this in a group of 2 or more people. There are some difficult spots on this trail. I wouldn't take this trail if you aren't semi experienced. There are a couple spots that you may need to climb. I hiked this trail with 3 other guys back in 2006. We started at Mckelligon Canyon and made it to Transmountain. Recommend planning around the weather.

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!

windy day but nice overcast.
