Mule Ears Spring Trail

Latitude, Longitude: 29.162655, -103.407612

This trail starts at the Mule Ears Overlook parking area at milepost 15 on the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive. Always in sight of the prominent "mule ears" peaks, the trail crosses several arroyos before reaching the spring. A rock corral and cottonwood trees mark the end. Fantastic geology and spring wildflowers make this a delightful day hike.


Directions from Ross Maxwell Drive: Travel along the road until mile 15
