    Ryan Stikeleather reviewed South Rim Trail - Boot Springs Trail

    over 4 years ago

    This is a challenging trail for sure. But worth every bit of the effort to reach the South Rim. I hiked Laguna Meadows (almost all uphill) to South Rim Trail and camped at SW4 (best spot if you can get it). The Northeast Trail closes from February 1 - May 31 for Peregrine Falcon nesting. If you are wanting to complete the entire rim trail, you will need to adjust for that.

    Hiked back down through Boot Canyon Trail, and really enjoyed the trail as it followed the canyon floor. This was my favorite section of the hike.

    There is no water on the trail and you will need to carry quite a bit. It's recommended to bring 1 Gal. per person per day! That might be a good idea in the extreme summer months, but that is still a lot of water. I carried 2.5 liters and was just fine. However, it was mid March and not hot at all.

    I was hoping to get to see some amazing nighttime skies, but the clouds rolled in early and was overcast the entire time.

    Big Bend is a fantastic National Park and to experience it in person is the best way appreciate it.
