  • Absolutely beautiful! The wildlife, the rock formations, the cool temperatures, and the incredible drive are not to be missed! We left El Paso at 104 degrees and arrived three hours later to 75 degrees and everything fresh and green after a rain. Hiking is highly recommended here but just the drive up to the lookouts is worth the trip!
  • This place is amazing! Hidden gem of the national Park system. Lots to see and magnificent trails all over the park. Visitor center is very helpful in giving information to make a wise decision of what you can do. We did the echo canyon loop trail. It's just under four miles long. Be careful during summer months. We left the trailhead it was sunny and clear. When we got down to echo Park thunderstorms had moved in.
