Oct 21, 2013 - Mesmerizing Franklin Mountain of El Paso Texas
It is not just the park itself that is simply breathtaking, the drive there is jaw-droppingly beautiful too. As the bus takes you to the park, you will soon see that there are many stops you can make that completes the whole journey. The official address for Franklin Mountain state park is 1331 McKelling Canyon Rd but that is a little confusing. If you are using a Texas charter bus rental services for this trip, then he or she should know this El Paso Texas tourist attraction and the way there. So, relax and enjoy the ride as the bus driver takes you en route to this amazing and unforgettable destination.
Franklin Mountain state park is America’s largest urban park and measures more than twenty four thousand acres, covering a massage thirty seven square miles. We do not think that it is possible to cover all the grounds that is to cover at the park so, the prudent thing to do is to check out the park’s map and decide on a couple of places that you would like to check out and head over.
The important thing to remember is that there are Rangers roaming throughout the park and they are incredibly happy to be of help to you. Don’t be shy, if you get lost or do not know your way around, get in touch with the rangers. They will definitely help point you in the right direction. One thing to note would be that the main part of the Franklin Mountain park is called ‘Tom Mays Unit’. This is perfect as a meeting point or if you decide to split up into smaller groups during the visit, make this your meet up point so that it is easier to gather and disperse. The Park does not have a main gate or ranger station but the rangers are easily accessible.
What is most outstanding about our visit was that we went off season which meant that we had the entire park to ourselves, despite this being one of the leading charter bus tourist destination in El Paso Texas.
One thing is for sure, you will not forget your visit to Franklin Mountain because of the varying degree of hiking trails and of course, not forgetting the gorgeous views of the rock climbing area. You will be completely immersed and enchanted with its official rock climbing area, if you are lucky, you will get to witness rock climbing enthusiasts at work.
