Mule Ears Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Mule Ears Trail showcases the unusual beauty of the Chihuahuan Desert. Various cacti and other desert plants border the trail as it winds through dry washes and across rolling desert terrain. During years of plentiful rain, springs and seeps stand out as verdant patches of lush vegetation, where cottonwoods, cattails, and willow trees shade pools inhabited by leopard frogs."
