Beautiful views!

Just did this trail today (February), and there was a ton of snow. Unfortunately we didn’t make it all the way to the lake since we weren’t in the proper gear (snow shoes and trekking poles). We got as far as we could and then the trail got too steep and the snow got too deep. I will definitely be coming back in the spring/summer!!

A must do if you are remotely near the E Paso area!!! arguably the best view in Texas besides Big Bend National Park and the top point of the Franklin Mountains!

Loved this hike. Very pretty views.

Canyon was neat, the rest of the trail was unnecessary.

Absolutely worth every step! Every turn revealed a scene even more beautiful than what I had just seen. Such stunning and unique views.

Easy at the beginning and moderately challenging once you get towards the peak as there is a bit of a steep climb.

Note: no cell service at the trail head but got it back at the peak.


We added Trip to Truchas Lakes for total mileage of ~28 Miles. Very long day! Fantastic scenery !

You get to hike all the way up the canyon wall wich is pretty amazing. It's start easy but get really difficult at the end because you litteraly have to climb the canyon's wall. I couldn't finish it but I enjoy it anyway!

Fantastic Trail- As you climb the grade is very reasonable and the view from lakes is truly spectacular. If you only do 1 Hike in the Pecos this would be it!

Easy hike to do in February. The view is simply amazing!

Not too hard at all. There wasn’t too much snow on the trail at all. We completed it on Feb 10. Took us about 3ish hours, but we are typically slow hikers. Enjoy :)

Easy trail with a great view !

great for running, despite the rocks it's doable.

Overall, great hike! Very high walls of the canyon, lots of different formations and coloring. Notes below:

- Took the Mineral Creek Road past Alma, several miles to follow after that I’m packed gravel and dirt. Easy to get through, just an FYI, but may be an issue during a rainy period.

- Small trailhead, no water or trail info unfortunately.

- You will cross water MANY times! Do yourself a favor and get water early to get it over with, in my opinion. Be careful on the rocks, many are slick or on uneven foundations. Lots of fun jumping from bank to bank at parts.

- Mile makers were tricky to determine. I saw one piece of rebar conspicuously hammered into the earth followed by two pieces and three pieces later. That may have been a marking system, wasn’t tracking my distance.

- Terrain includes loose rock, sandy shores, earthy grasslands, small boulder scrambles, and much more. I’d say this is on the more challenging side of moderate.

Even with this minor observations, still an excellent trail.

Hiked this trail over 100 times. It’s my conditioning trail because it’s so close.

Beautiful geology. Unlike anything else - even Bryce Canyon Utah.

Beautiful hike! That trail isn't very defined- we only made it about a mile because the trail line ran out. But the rock formations are definitely worth seeing!

It's private property owned by the Mosque. Enter the property under the wooden archly and follow the road.

The trail was pretty rocky but decent. Only half a mile climb to the top, nothing spectacular.

The hiking is great, every turn you make is worth continuing the hike to the top. Once at the top, the view is amazing.
