There are many beautiful places around El Paso to hike and explore. Now, that school is out for summer, it's a great way to entertain yourself and/or your kids.

There are tons of trails, mines and caves in El Paso waiting to be explored. Here are a few of my favorites:

It's going to be pretty hot this summer so, I recommend that you go early in the morning. (Evening works for some trails.) Be sure someone knows where you're going, bring plenty of water and sunscreen, a cell phone and watch out for snakes!
