A great trail with incredible geology and history. A part of several of the best local rides.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This is one of the finest trails in the Big Bend. It took many scouting trips to put together the old historic route that was built in the 1910's by the U.S. Army to help protect the border during the Mexican Revolution.
