    El Paso trails + rental?

    Hey there!

    Heading to El Paso and San Antonio next week, but my one free day (more like just the morning) has me in El Paso. A quick look (and the sticky at the top) show more than a few locations to ride.

    How is Franklin Mountain? Is there anything better in the area? What's the best loop? I'm playing around on Strava checking, and there's a ton of trails.

    I've got 2-3 hours of pedal time, I like to climb and technical / steep isn't a problem. Small to medium drops are fun, but I'm more of a XC guy and would shy away from too big a gap.

    Any good shops to snag a good rental from? I'm guessing the Trek Store doesn't rent?

    Thanks!

    Bonus points for best beer and coffee suggestions in the area..

    Check out Lost Dog trail, nice trail and it has map of the trail on the head trail. It's located on Redd road and once you see a big water tower/tank then you're on the right place.

    Trek bike store on Resler street has nice selections of rental bikes, cost me $50.00 and it's very close to Lost Dog trail. Just leave your vehicle at the Trek bike store parking lot and pedal yourself to the trail.

    Just be careful with the rattle snakes.

    Awesome info, I'll check it out.

    We've got a lot of Rattlers this way too, I'll be on the lookout!

    Thanks!
