A Frontier Post Fort Davis is one of the best surviving examples of an Indian Wars' frontier military post in the Southwest. From 1854 to 1891, Fort Davis was strategically located to protect emigrants, mail coaches, and freight wagons on the Trans-Pecos portion of the San Antonio-El Paso Road and on the Chihuahua Trail.

this is the primitive trail across the hwy from the state park. although long. the footing and grade is easier to hike than the trails in the campground. great views.

This a nice easy walk for a couple hours of relaxing time in the mountains with the family. My 8 year old son hiked this one easily and even got to the top ahead of me. The views are excellent, perfect for a couple of memorable photos.

Nice easy trail with great views of the mountains and Fort Davis.

Beautiful vistas every where you turn & a great view of the University of Texas McDonald Observatory in the distance. We found a treasure under a big tree at the top near a fence!
