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.
