The Pat O’Rourke Memorial Trail is a good opportunity for an off-road run just north of cental El Paso. It’s a multi-use path that runs adjacent, but separate from N. Resler Dr. from Helen of Troy Dr., north to Transmountain (SR375). It’s 4.4 miles out and back. With its setting alongside a busy secondary road and just east of I-10, this won’t be the prettiest run you’ll ever do. Heading northward, it’s a gradual, but not a steep climb. Note: No water or restrooms, so plan accordingly.

Essentials
  • 4.4 miles (7 km) out and back
