Named for the Bend of the Rio Grande along the USA Mexico, this park has part of the Chihuahuan Desert, ancient fossils, and cultural artifacts of Native Americans.

Amazing view overlooking this canyon

Very difficult beautiful trail especially
for people used to low elevation hiking. Colima warbler spotted at the end makes 9 hr round trip well worth the effort.

Great hike! I can see why it's so popular. Lots of uphill (1000ft-2.2miles), but worth the climb. The 360 degree views from the top are spectacular. Be prepared to see more people on this trail than other hikes in the park.

Not a hike, just a quick walk. There is the option to do the Windows hike, which is about five miles long. The views are fine, but after doing the South Rim, Lost Mine, and Santa Elena Canyon, they weren't as good as those. I would bet doing the whole hike would offer even better views.

Nice quick hike. When you're in the canyon and looking straight up it really is a site to behold. It's also really cool to know that one half of the canyon is Texas, but right across the river is Mexico. I do wish when you got to the end of the trail there was a better "payoff" view, where you could see clearly both sides of the canyon, but that's me being picky. Just seeing the Rio Grande and the towering canyon walls was worth the trip.
