Lonely Planet review
Sure, you'd feel a sense of accomplishment if you hiked to the top of the Franklin Mountains. We're not suggesting you take the easy way out (or are we?), but it only takes about four minutes to take a gondola to the top. After gliding 2400ft and gaining 940ft in elevation, you'll reach the viewing platform on top of Ranger Peak, where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of Texas, New Mexico and Mexico.
For maximum enjoyment, bring binoculars and a jacket – maybe even a picnic to enjoy at the top (but leave alcohol and glass bottles at home).
