Nice, easy gravel trail. You can start from either HWY 428 or 455. As other reviews have said, south of HWY 428 remains closed. It’s nice and wide so bikers and hikers can share the path. Goes for 4 miles, first mile coming from the north is tree covered, but the other 3 miles has no shade, running along fields with livestock—nice to see while on the trail. There’s an equestrian trail on the east side of the river but it was closed.

Amazing trail! DO NOT pass up the South Rim. It is a must. We started at Juniper Canyon, hiked to Homer Wilson Ranch, and camped up the wash. We cached water at Homer Wilson before we began the hike. On day two we hiked up to the South Rim after filling our water at Boot Canyon and camped at site 7. We reserved the spot and loved having dinner and breakfast on the rim. Day three we hiked back down to our car at Juniper Canyon which was a great way to end the hike. Easy downhill and beautiful views. Can’t wait to come back!

Definitely our most challenging hike to date. My biggest suggestion about this hike is don’t underestimate the challenging nature of the ascent and start from the trailhead early! We hiked this the first week in December. The hardest park of this hike is definitely the first 1.5 miles. It is all ascent, and steep ascent at that. You will gain much of your elevation at this time. This trail gains just over 3,000ft total. Take your time in this section and take breaks if you need to. The best part of this section is looking out and seeing the improving views of the landscape below as you go. The last 0.25 miles can be a little tricky. The trail loses definition somewhat and a little scrambling is required. But my goodness...those views! Breathtaking! Honestly, the descent is not necessarily easy either as the switchbacks are not gradual by any means and we were tired by this point. You are exposed for majority of this hike during the most difficult parts, so pack plenty of water and wear sunscreen. Also, can be very windy in spots so keep that in mind. This is a beautiful, challenging, breathtaking hike. Don’t underestimate it, but don’t underestimate yourself either!

Great trail. Rained the day before but it was sandy mud so not too bad. Incredible cedar forest camps between mile 4 and 5 for an overnight camp. Water was abundant after the rain. We backpacked and couldn’t get a fire started due to the rain with what we gathered.

Too many cyclists no room to walk

So good! Great views all along the south rim and pretty flat once you get to the rim. I came up Laguna which is not as step as pinnacles and made for an enjoyable ascent and descent. I made this a 17 mile hike by going all the way to the NE rim and boot canyon junction and then turned around retracing my route back to Laguna. The best hike at Chisos basin!

Very easy to navigate. Completed with four kids, 10,9,5,5. Last portion to get to UPPER mines was very steep and full of loose, eroded rock, making it a bit dangerous for the kids. My wife and I held onto the little for that last, steep stretch. They had fun in mines. Bring a flashlight. Otherwise trail was rather nondescript.

Part of the trail is closed for repair. This is a nice trail for an urban area like Austin, but don’t come expecting breathtaking or dramatic views. It’s a nice outdoor walk.

This was a great first backpacking trip for my wife. We did a pretty short trip. Came in at juniper late afternoon, hiked in and then made camp for the night and hiked back in the early morning. The trails were marked very well with trail maintenance and upkeep throughout. We’re fairly new to Texas and were not expecting there to be nearly as many hills as there were. It was great! The only thing we did not like is around miles 2&3 you are basically hiking through someone’s backyard. Overall 4/5 stars!

Amazing hike but a little windy today. Take it from an out of shape hiking enthusiast it doesn’t have to take 6-8 hours to complete this hike. Took us 2:20 to get up and 2:10 to get down going the long way (horse trail).

Has to be one if not the best hike so far. So much to see, fantastic views. Conditions do change from close quarters to wide open fields. Took South Rim by way of Pinnacles. Less than 30 minutes into hike came across small Black Bear. Start early as you can, my step counter on this trail alone surpassed 40,000 steps. I’m no professional but glad I prepared and conditioned myself months prior to visiting the park. If you only had one day to visit, do this one!

Nice challenging hike, easy to follow trail. The summit was in a cloud (snow storm rolling through) so I couldn’t see the view but a great accomplishment. I’d take micro spikes in winter just in case.

Great day for a long hike.

Excellent but long trail. Very good views of the Franklin Mountains and the mines are a pleasure to explore.

Great day to be out in the Tin Mines in El Paso. Went on a stroll with the meetup group El Paso hiking and Elite hiking from Facebook. Great people, new friends being made and all sharing a purpose. Gotta love it.

Hiked solo on Jan 14. My first time up GP and everything I read here helped tremendously so thanks to all previous entries. 60 years old here and 5:40 round trip with 45 minutes on top in the wind. I'm guessing I stopped 15 times on the way up to catch breath and stare at the gorgeous views. A little windy this day but nothing terrible. 7:35 am start and first one to the top so that was exciting. Saw maybe 20 at most others headed up on my way down. Two very small area's of old snow on the shady side about 2/3 the way up but easily passable. A great climb and park personnel were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Nice walk thru the woods. Trails are clearly marked. We got about an inch or two of rain the night before and there was little to no mud. All the little stream crossing have a bridge or wood layer down to cross. Not the most scenic trail but it is quite and an easy walk for an afternoon. Few logs crossing the trail but just step over them and the path is wide enough for a single hiker at a time without the underbrush bothering you too much.

great trail. took us three and a half hours to complete. very sand in spots. recently rained so was muddy and wet.

This was a great well maintained trail. The hike was hard. I'm 34 and don't workout often and hiked with my dad who is 59 and works out frequently. I kept up with him most of the way. He did think it was a tough trail as well, but it's definitely doable. We actually did really great on time. It was windy, and we packed well for the cold air. We had backpacks with extra water and snack and could easily pack our extra jackets when we got warmer on the way down. First 1.5 miles is tough then it gets a little easier and then the last mileish to the top you keep cursing and wondering why the heck you did this. But then you get there take your pictures and remember that you're unstoppable and had a great time along with good memories.

1/11/2020 Slightly muddy after last nights rain, I only remembered to record half the loop so double the time and distance. Great trail, both mud/dirty and then flat rocky sections. Only a couple of up and downhill sections, plus a pond and river along the way

Went up through meadows and down pinnacles. Took us about 5.5 hours with a few stops and eating lunch at the top. Most beautiful view in the park! I highly recommend if you’re wanting a challenge

I did this trail for the first time in early May 2018 and wrote a review and my experience about it then. I was not properly prepared then for the heat and ended up being dehydrated and with painful muscle crumps. But I made it back and learned from the experience. Since then, I did the trail again in January 2019 and a third time two do days ago. Although true, this can be a dangerous trail, it can be done safely if one prepares for it. And the views are certainly worth it! So, as others also said before, bring at least a gallon of water in winter and more in late spring. If possible, avoid doing it in the summer. And in any case, do not do it alone. And start early (at sunrise) as it gets hit even in winter with no shade and the sun beating down on you. The trail starts easy enough but turns right (East) in a quarter mile steep climb about 1.5 miles into the it. It gets easier for a while and you reach a split at about 3.6 miles. We took the south fork which had us going down a steep incline toward the river for about 3/4 of a mile. This is one of a couple tougher parts of the trail and one needing caution as it is easy to slip on the loose gravel. Here you will have beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and the river. At about the sixth mile you reach another split where you can go right all the way to the river or continue left for 2 miles to connect to the north fork. If you choose to go to the river, this would add another mile to the distance and make the total trail distance 15 miles(AllTrails is wrong to list the trail as 13.5 miles). When you turn left you will go about 2 miles, much of it parallel to the river, after which you turn left, and navigate through a canyon going steadily up. This is another tough part of the trail you should take care with and look for the cairns to keep you on the trail. Once you get back to the split, you reverse the route you took earlier for 3.6 miles to the trail head.
