Modesta Canyon Trail near Fort Davis

The Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center near Fort Davis, has several trails for hikers to explore.  Here are some views of the 1.75 moderate to difficult trail, the Modesta Canyon Trail.  The Center's website says this about the trail:  "The hike into Modesta Canyon features permanent springs and pools, fascinating geology, and a rich display of flora and fauna. Here you’ll find huge madrone trees, majestic southwestern chokecherries, and some of the largest Tracey hawthorns in the state. Over 17 species of ferns are found tucked into crevices along the canyon walls."

A description of the Center's trails is here.
