Gems in El Paso - 3

Trail Run Project is built by runners like you. Add Your Gems

gem Favorite About as tough as it gets along a trail, the climbing segments on Ron Coleman are fairly easy by bouldering standards, maybe a v1. There are plenty of good holds and a chain to help out.

The Window

(4) El Paso, TX
gem Favorite Nearly half of the Ron Coleman Trail's distance is spent descending back into Fusselman Canyon, which it follows all the way from North Franklin Peak. From up here, the hills of the Lost Dog area (upper left) don't look so tall.

Mammoth Rock

(4) El Paso, TX
gem Favorite View looking north on Anthony Gap Trail before arriving at cave.
