    Recommend going to the park during the hours before sunset when it is cooler and the crowds have gone out for dinner. The light is beautiful and the backdrop of snow capped La Sal Mountains makes this a very photogenic short walk.

    Laura Kilty reviewed South Rim Trail - Boot Springs Trail

    3 months ago

    Do this hike on a clear day to get the great views to the west, south, and east at the rim. The drive into the Chisos Basin is spectacular. An easy day hike with lots of changes in habitat and a well maintained trail. The northeast rim (an extension of this trail) was not open due to nesting peregrine falcons which we watched soaring around the cliffs. We did the trail in 6 hours, counterclockwise and the grade is very gradual. Lots of birds!!

    A well maintained trail with a steady grade. We are in our early 60s and made the round trip in 4.5 hours with a 20 minute break for lunch at the top. A great workout and not too crowded. Great view at the top even on a hazy day. Nice breezes although I have heard it can be very windy. I think we got lucky! We would not have done this hike if it was not the Texas Highpoint. This area is not near any hotel or gas facilities so plan ahead. We stayed in Carlsbad where the oil and gas industry have taken over the town. The hotel prices in Carlsbad are outrageous because of the oil boom.
