Things To Do
Standing atop the Sierra de Cristo Rey (formerly known as the Cerro de los Muleros, Mule Drivers Mountain), in Sunland Park, New Mexico, the 29 ft. tall limestone statue of Christ serves as a shrine to thousands of faithfuls in the El Paso and Southern New Mexico area. Because of Mt. Cristo Rey’s proximity to Mexico, it’s best to hike up the mountain in a group. The well-maintained trail is about 4.4 miles round trip and provides stunning, unparalleled views of Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico.
