Very ROCKY trail

I run here most weekends when I am in town. The trail is VERY rocky. Running or hiking is best - mountain biking is treacherous. I tried and won't be back. There are no... read more

Bottom Line up front: I like to hike and I didn't really enjoy this hike. The trail is poorly marked, and rough on the ankles. It did afford some nice views, but the 1000 steps trail is a 2 mile there and back, and once you finish that trail it links up with another loop trail, making the whole hike... More

I run here most weekends when I am in town. The trail is VERY rocky. Running or hiking is best - mountain biking is treacherous. I tried and won't be back. There are no services, no water, or anything if you get hurt to help you. Be prepared if you come here with water, a phone, and necessary gear.

Probably the most awesome view in a city that is filled with scenes of mountains, desert and the Rio Grande.

I hike a 4.5 mile loop which includes this trail with my Lab several times a month. Being on mountains which cut through the city, access is incredible easy. It is steep in places with desert terrain. From the top of the mountain you can see 3 states and 2 nations which is unique. The name is very melodramatic but... More

If you love El Paso, as I do, then you must find time to hike the 1,000 Steps Trail. There are a couple of websites with good directions to the trail head (I've posted them below). This is a tough but manageable hike. As with all hikes in El Paso be sure you carry plenty of WATER. I always carry... More
