All reviews great view night view ciudad juarez winding road parking is limited beautiful at night parking spot city lights great drive food truck new mexico take pictures west side visiting el paso franklin mountains surrounding area murchison
For me it was about the view and standing in one country and looking over into another one. this is a place that is good for taking the time to sit still and reflect on life and even possibly journal and few lines.
A short drive through trans mountain has a few spots to pull over for a view. It has a nice layout of the flatlands of the west side and there is an area to pull off and go hike into the canyon and hills. Not...More
We were at first a bit put off by all the roadworks around the Route here but we were pleased we persisted as the view is wonderful. There are a coup of places to pull in to and some explanation of what you are looking...More

While Four Corners defines the juncture of northern New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah, scenic drive provides an overview of...More

This is a City of El Paso site, it would be best to contact them. you should keep in mind that due to the elevation being so high it is typically winding up there, it may not be best for your wedding...
We are ending a 3 week trip to New Mexico in El Paso. Plan to get there on Friday night following a stay at Carlsbad. On Saturday we hope to go on tram and then to either Franklin or Hueco Parks for hiking and last views. On Sunday prior to late flight we will do the Scenic Drive Overlook. Which park would be the better choice and any other thoughts? Thank you.

Hello ScottinPTC-GA, I can give some input for part of your itinerary. Others will have to weigh in for the rest. As far as the bat program, It would be extremely unlikely. The bats migrate to Mexico for the winter. They return in April or May. I doubt that includes the first week of April. I would strongly suggest, though, that you allow enough time at Carlsbad to fit in both self guided tours and one of the ranger guided tours. Most would suggest that this is the minimum to really...More
