Join a park ranger on a guided hike through the Western foothills of the Franklin Mountains.

This hike is an easy to moderately difficult hike of about 1.2 miles round trip. The trail is well maintained for most of the hike, with a steep incline with loose rubble just ahead of the entrance to the cave, so we will take this section slowly and carefully. There are benches at several scenic overlooks along the trail.

Reservations required; to reserve your spot, call the office at (915) 444-9100.

 

 Bring: water, snacks, hiking boots/shoes, and comfortable clothes.

 

 Optional: binoculars, hiking stick, camera, and a map.

 Meeting location: The Aztec Caves parking area. After stopping by the visitor center to purchase your entrance permit, continue down the road until you pass the RV parking area. Take the first right hand turn after the RV parking area and continue to the end of the road.

 Fee: $8 for adults 13 years old and up; $3 for Texas State Park Pass holders; $1 for children 12 and under.
