Burn Off Thanksgiving Day Calories With A Hike Up El Paso’s Ranger Peak
Hiking up Ranger's Peak and taking a ride on the Wyler Tramway are a couple of must do's when you live in El Paso. If you've never been up the mountain on the Tramway, or hiked up Ranger's Peak, the day after Thanksgiving is the perfect time to do it.
The Wyler Aerial Tramway State Park is holding their Turkey Hike on Friday, November 25. You'll get to burn off all that turkey and stuffing and check out three states (Texas, New Mexico, and Chihuahua), and two nations (United States and Mexico) from the top of the mountain. The view is one that you will never forget, and with family members in town for the holiday, this is the perfect way to wow them with this unique El Paso gem.
Meet at the Park’s parking lot at 8 a.m. and be ready to hike one mile uphill to Ranger Peak which takes up to two hours. The hike is open to everyone, but it is considered a strenuous hike, so be prepared. Whatever you wear, make sure you can hike comfortably in it. You’ll also need sturdy shoes, a hat, water, and a walking stick, if you feel that you need one. If you don’t feel like hiking down, you can take the tram back down to the parking lot.
