Where is this?

EL PASO!!  The Franklin Mountains State Park is a wonderful mountain biking destination and the largest urban state park in the nation...but it doesn't look very "urban," does it?  Set within the city limits, the park is a stunning background to the metropolis, and it offers more than 37 square miles of wilderness for hiking, mountain biking, climbing and more.  A park map is located here.

For regional cycling information, visit:  This page includes a listing of our cycle-friendly hotels, including the nearby El Paso Airport Hyatt Place hotel.  Their cycle-friendly services include: oversized guest rooms for safe storage of bikes, purchase freshly made breakfasts/lunches/snacks packs for cycling adventures , complimentary shuttle to airport and within 3 mile radius, 24 hour fitness center, outdoor pool, laundry/valet services.
