Miles and miles of single track, dirt roads and dual tracks in this area. Technical rolling terrain.
There are several trails to choose from in the area around the base of Franklin Mountain. You'll find single track, dirt roads and dual track that go all over the base and up Franklin. Too many trails to name all of them. Most of them are rocky and technical. The terrain rolls up and down making sure you get a good long hard work out. There is a $2.00/bike and $2.00/rider or just $2.00 if member of IMBA. You'll find tons of different terrain out here. Lots of fun. Try the trail that starts just inside the park after the ranger post at some picnic tables on the left on top of a hill. Others also start on the small mountain to the left of the main road while others are on the right. The ones on the right will take you over the Franklin Mountains. This is a big time workout and climb as the mountains go up over 6000 feet.
How to get there:
From El Paso head west on I-10 to the Canutillo exit. Then drive up toward the mountain for about 3.8 miles. Turn left at the sign entrance "Franklin Mountain State Park." Be sure to pay the entrance fee as the ranger will come look for you if you don't.
Be sure to bring lots of water and ride this trail only early in the day in the summer or anytime in
