Hike to the Tin Mines
Join the UTEP Miners in celebrating our mountains by visiting the only tin mines in the United States! Learn about the structure and formation of the Franklins, the geological history that played a significant role of the creation of tin, as well as the history and excavation of the old tin mine. This 6.5-mile round trip is generally easy as well as dog friendly, so don't forget your furry friends! Remember to bring your sunscreen, proper gear, lunch and plenty of water. Meet in the parking lot of Chuck Heinrich Park.
