Join a park ranger on a guided hike through the Western foothills of the Franklin Mountains.
This hike is a moderate 3 mile hike. After a steep initial descent down an old jeep road, the trail transitions to well-maintained trail that climbs up and out of the canyon meandering around rock outcroppings before making its way back up. It ends with a slightly steeper climb up to the scenic overlook.
Reservations required; to reserve your spot, call the office at (915) 444-9121.
Bring: water, snacks, hiking boots/shoes, and comfortable clothes.
Meeting location: The end loop in the Tom Mays Unit. When you enter Tom Mays, stop by the Visitor Center and let the Ranger on duty know you are part of the hike. This is where you will pay the fee. Continue down the road until it ends in a loop and find a parking spot.
