You will go from the Desert floor to the top of the North Franklin Peak and circumnavigate the mountain back to the finish line. See the sun rise as you climb to the top of the North Franklin Peak. On top you will be able to see mountains from Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, and across the Mexico Border.
The Franklins are the largest sustained mountain range in Texas, with the summit of North Franklin Peak rising to an elevation of 7,192 feet, approximately 3,000 feet above the city below. On the eastern flank of North Franklin Mountain lie the remnants of our nation's only tin mining, milling, and smelting operation, which was active from 1910 through 1915.
The Franklin Mountains State Park has primitive only camping without water. This is a true diamond in the rough and we can't wait to show it to you.
