360 degree view of the Davis Mountains, Clayton's Overlook Trail

Mitre Peak in the background, with an intrepetive panel showing the history and geology of the view
Did you know that the road through Wild Rose Pass is not quite the historic route taken by travelers?  This exhibit shows both routes.
Lovely view
Explanation of the geology of the area
There's a great trail outside Fort Davis, at the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center that offers an interpeted 360 degree view of the Davis Mountains.  It is rated moderate to difficult, and 2.25 miles takes you to the highest point on the property, where Our Dynamic Landscape exhibit shows the geology, geography and history of the area
