I was dead on the first few actual steps but there were plenty of rocks to sit on and take a breather - make sure you bring enough water and take breaks when you need

It's a great work out. If you are out of shape and don't run or do any cardio. It will take your breath away n you will get tired but boy is it worth.

Non emergency vehicles should be restricted during certain times. They speed , even the parks and wildlife trucks and city of El Paso. I was scared.

My wife and I live just under a mile from the foot of this trail. We were able to get a puppy from home, to the turn around in the valley, and back to home without the puppy giving up. Now, she's a tough girl, but a total of about 6.5 miles is pretty good. I say this so that it can be used for perspective. Running it would obviously hold separate challenges, but most people would be able to complete and enjoy this trail. The entire road up has at least a 4 feet wide "sidewalk" to stay away from the traffic. There is also bathroom facilities up top and a gas station right near the bottom. Overall, a great way to get outside with older children, your bike, or a dog like us.

This trail is actually an access road leading into the canyon. I used to run this route once a week while I was in the military for physical training, and it will burn you out! Most people walk the road, as riding a bike can be grueling on the uphill climb through the canyon. The place is pretty active in the early mornings during the week and weekends.
