Aztec Cave Trail is a 0.7 mile out and back trail located near El Paso, Texas that features a cave and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Hike up a desert arroyo to a mountain cave. From the trailhead, follow the trail up in a S-SE direction for 0.72 miles to arrive at the cave. There are benches for resting at several scenic overlooks along the trail. This is a good trail for kids and dogs.
Great trail, but I'm not sure it should be rated as easy.
We had an amazing time! Hiking boots are better than tennis shoes lol! Views are amazing!!
It was breath taking it is the best trail I have ever been to.
Great for kids and family fun!
Loved the views. Although rated easy, this trail is pretty steep and rocky (especially coming back down).
awesome but not easy
great view, not an easy hike
If you have one, bring your walking stick. The trail is steep and rocky. I was glad that I wore my hiking boots instead of walking sneakers as originally planned. Dog owners, bring boots for Rover. My dog's back left paw suffered minor rock abrasion. Along the trail, there are several rest stops with benches and one with a pavilion, picnic table and grill if you are so inclined to have lunch. View is great at all rest stops, but the best is from the cave. All in all, the hike was short and sweet.
Great view once you get up there. It is a little bit of a challenge going up if you aren't ready for the elevation in El Paso.
Nice, quick, and easy. Good for kids and dogs
