A 10.5-mile stretch of the developing Rio Grande River Trail begins near the Texas/New Mexico border and continues south, connecting the Texas communities of Anthony, Vinton, Canutillo and El Paso. Along the way, you'll enjoy wide open desert vistas and views of the Franklin Mountains.
A short, disconnected section of just over a mile lies farther south in Sunland Park, New Mexico.
The best access is at Mary Frances Keisling Park on Gomez Rd off Upper Valley Rd. Limited parking is available where the trail crosses Vinton Road in Vinton, Texas. From Interstate 10, take Exit 2 and travel west on Vinton Road (State Route 37). The small parking lot is located just beyond the bridge over the Rio Grande River, which you'll encounter just after the traffic light at Doniphan Drive (SR 20).
