I used to walk this regularly and never really considered it a "hike" but it is a very enjoyable walk along the canal where you can see horses and sometimes ducks in the water. Very nice walk.

Hiked this one with the El Paso Ridgewalkers. Its a beautiful hike. Please exercise caution when crossing the heavily traveled Country Club Road. There are lots of photos of this hike on www.elpasoridgewalkers.com

This trail reminds me of those hot summer marathons since I used it a lot for training. Still, my running buddies like that place. My new favorite, FMSP.
