COVID-19 Emergency Directive, Information, and Resources
The Paso del Norte Trail is a community-driven, collaborative effort to develop a county-wide trail in El Paso County. The goal is to create a regionally significant landmark that promotes active transportation, preserves the history and culture of our region, highlights the Rio Grande river, supports economic development and ecotourism, provides educational and volunteer opportunities, and makes healthy living the easy choice for our unique, binational community.
The roughly 68–mile span of the Paso del Norte (PDN) Trail is divided into five distinct districts, each broadly defined by their unique geographical, historical, and cultural context, as well as various amenities and attractions that help define them.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"The Playa Drain Trail is the beginning of something BIG that a few folks have been working so hard to make happen.
It’s a fun easy train for riding bikes, jogging or walking."
