One of the best hikes in Big Bend , entered thru the campground , lots of wildflowers and birds along the way , the window area can be slippery but well worth the view..

great hiking trail , beautiful scenic views , brought walking sticks along too , climb on the rocks and enjoy the view of Juniper Valley , you can't go wrong hiking this trail in Big Bend !!

Great views of the Canyon. Can continue walking in the river once the trail ends.

Great hike and great view of the canyon.

Great trail for a day hike. Difficult but worth it. Did not do the rock climbing the last 25 feet though.

Absolutely beautiful views of the canyon walls, easy trail for the whole family.

Fairly easy walk into the Canyon with the Rio Grande several hundred feet below. Requires an initial climb then levels out. Popular hike so expect to see lots of people. Great views of the Chisos looking back out of the canyon.

very scenic and beautiful with a nice tunnel, don't go past the road to the right if you would rather drive than hike to the hot springs. still a little trail but nice and shaded. the road is narrow as can be.

while my wife and I loved it she mentioned it needs more resting areas. Great view although it's slippery at the end so watch out the fall would suck

One of the best hikes at Big Bend

This trail is 4.2 total miles out and back with an elevation around 1000 feet. The trail starts easy with a progressive up hill incline. After about 1.5 miles the trail descends a bit into the wash below then climbs rather steep for about 0.4 miles until you reach the rock wall. The hike through the wash and to the wall is totally in trees and brush. This is definitely a moderate hike based on similar ratings in Big Bend. My mileage represents one direction on record.
