“Well worth the short walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

There's a fairly new boardwalk that takes you over the wet area, and the trail itself is very well-maintained and signed. A spur that takes you right down to the banks of the Rio Grande is worth a few extra minutes, but the highlight is the spectacular view of the Rio Grande & into Mexico after a brief climb near the end of the walk.

“Go early or late”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

We were at the trail at the wrong time and saw much more and varied wildlife within a few hundred yards of the village store .... but I suspect it's all in the timing and chance. Great views of roadrunner collecting nesting material whihc we watched for some time.

“Hummmm”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

I was very dissapointed with this trail. The park invested in a nice woodwalk but it lasted only for a few yards and I did not saw any wildlife in the water. I enjoyed seeing "carrisos" that grow nest to the rivers in Mexico.

“Beautiful....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2010

Beautiful scenery next to the Rio Grande river. The mudd along the river is quite thick so be careful. It also has some huge thorn bushes/trees.
