Fossil Bone Exhibit to Hot Springs via Tornillo Creek Professional Review and Guide
"This off-trail overnight hike is a great way to see some of the Chihuahuan Desert lowlands by traveling along Tornillo Creek, a major arroyo (or drainage) for the northern and eastern part of the national park. By simply following the arroyo bed all the way downstream, you can forgo the need for a trail and enjoy some of the country normally occupied only by wildlife. Sometimes, particularly the winter months, large pools of water and springs are found along the first half of the route."
--E. Dan Klepper, 100 Classic Hikes in Texas (The Mountaineers Books).
