A great place to visit this spring is the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center's humingbird and butterfly trail.  The Nature Center's website says this about the trail:  "This easy, but rocky, loop is only about 1/3 of a mile long. The trail starts at the pollinator garden and skirts the rocky outcrop of Cactus Hill. The views of Mitre Peak are spectacular and the trees, shrubs, and wildflowers that crowd the hillside attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and other fun creatures in the summer." 

We recommend the trail as a quick little hike with LOTS to see, including beautiful scenery, plants and wildlife! 

When traveling near Fort Davis, check out this wonderful place...they have other trails, a cactus and succulent greenhouse, interesting exhibits and a WONDERFUL gift shop!  The nature center is a site on the new Far West Texas Wildlife Trail map, too!
