A steep incline on the edge of La Espina Hill looks out into the northwest corner of Texas.

Overview

Because of the steep grade and smooth rock, this trail should not be attempted in wet conditions.
Features: Views — Wildflowers

Description

Connecting La Espina Ledge and Granola Bowl, La Espina's short distance features a nice viewpoint and either a challenging climb or precipitous descent. Switching back a short distance into La Espina Ledge, the trail climbs briefly to a viewpoint at the top of the hill. The path continues north briefly before turning left and beginning a very steep descent along the northwest face of the hill. Smooth flatrock helps control the pace on the way down, but care needs to be exercised as a fall here could easily result in injury. As the trail smooths out, it turns south and joins Granola Bowl.
