Pretty trail. As others have stated, the distance and elevation on here are a bit off, it's closer to 4 miles & 1000' r/t.

The views, particularly at the bottom by The Window, are definitely worth the trip down.

As with all canyon hikes, you need to remember to save energy for the trip back.

Short hike, pretty easy with a little bit of elevation at the end. I think this trail is a must-have for everyone visiting Big Bend - Balanced Rock is really neat!

Wonderful hike, this was one of my favorites! Long, with some steep spots, but very enjoyable and plenty of nice places to rest if necessary. It was less populated than some other trails and other parks, which was a huge plus.
