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.

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.

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
