West Cottonwood Spring Trail to Mundys Gap Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Franklin Mountains State Park is a momentary respite from the unimpeded, bi-national sprawl that constitutes the El Paso–Juarez–Las Cruces corridor. Air pollution, borderland chicanery, and runaway suburban spread plague what would be an otherwise pleasant desert community. To top it off, bulldozing a multi-lane highway corridor through the middle of what remained of the area’s natural wilderness made little sense to anyone other than the inconvenienced who were required to drive around the base of the Franklin Mountain range to get to the other side."
--E. Dan Klepper, 100 Classic Hikes in Texas (The Mountaineers Books).
