The Unique Hike In Texas That Leads You To Plane Wreckage From 1953

We have no shortage of amazing hikes here in Texas, but not many also serve as a history lesson. This amazing trail at Franklin Mountain State Park leads to the intact wreckage of a B-36 Bomber plane, and you can see the ruins firsthand.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Franklin Mountains State Park is located at Tom Mays Park Access Rd, El Paso, TX 79930.
