Two trailheads open in Northeast El Paso

Community

Residents in Northeast El Paso are celebrating the opening of two new hiking trails. Saturday afternoon, city officials unveiled the new ‘Lazy Cow’ and ‘Round House’ trailheads at the Franklin Mountains State Park.

The new trails feature solar recharging tables, pet areas, bike repair stations and other amenities. The new additions are part of the city’s $2 million project aiming to improve hiking and biking trails within the Franklin Mountains. 

“The outdoors is a big part of our tourist ecosystem here, and the addition of these two new trails just adds to that,” Northeast City Representative Sam Morgan said. “It gives residents and visitors an opportunity to our great outdoors.”

The trailheads are part of the 2012 Quality of Life Bond. They’re located near Chuck Heinrich Park at the end of Officer Andrew Barcena Drive, just north of the intersection of Loma Real Avenue.
