This trail is found behind the Indian Lodge in Davis Mountains State Park. It is rocky and begins a little steep but soon offers beautiful views of the park.

Short easy trail. We did it combining Montezuma Quail loop. Very well marked, but rocky. Good views.

Seamus O'Toole is correct, this is not the official marked route (at least, not anymore) Anyhow, it's a great trail with fantastic views in all directions. Saw deer, hawks, and many Aoudad.

Super easy trail! The views got better the higher you went. I took my dog and we had fun. Was nice to find some hiking here in the desert!

Very beautiful trail. It was fairly steep but so worth it when you got to the top.

The main route listed here for the trail is incorrect. Pay attention to trail markers made by visitors (stacked rocks blocking trail). The route shown here is either an old trail not used for a long time or a record of someone taking a game trail. Do not use this for navigation. Get an updated trail map from the park office before setting out.

This is a beautiful trail and a nice way to get a taste of the Davis Mountians area a couple hours. If you take it slow, take lots of pictures, and enjoy the scenery this is an easy hike. We started on the campsite side and ended at the Indian Lodge. It's then another mile or less to the campsite. There are other trails to explore around there as well and makes for a nice way to fill a weekend of camping or even if you are just passing through.
