Less of a trail and more of a vista! Gorgeous. Enjoyed the panoramic. Not strenuous - easy for families.

Beautiful trail that slowly descends from the Chisos Basin campground. You descend into a canyon that ends with an amazing rock window view that can be over 30 miles on a clear day.

There is a Window Trail which starts from the Chisos campground which is absolutely beautiful. It is about 3 miles long and has great scenery leading to the gorge at the end if the trail. Steps carved out of the gorges stone walls and wildlife on the trail makes it even more special.

This is a very busy trail, especially around sunset. It starts at the Chisos Basin Trailhead, and loops around a low hill. It is paved which makes it suitable for wheelchairs. Great views of the Window!
