Fun little hike. No shade so it was quite hot. Very neat to walk along the Rio Grande.

The trail starts with a lot of up and down in elevation. The first climb is the toughest part. The beautiful vistas in the canyon are worth the climb. I got a thrill from being able to walk right up to the Rio Grande.

Nice short trail to the canyon wall. Don't forget to tip the "singing Mexican"!

Easy trail and you can appreciate de border between USA and Mexico, in some places separated for about 30 feet!

Forgot to mention... Our boys are 8 and 5, and it was the perfect length/challenge for a 5yo's third trail of the day.

A nice walk. We went mid-day and there was very little shade. Kids will need a drink after tackling the sand slope!

A great trail alongside the Rio Grande in Big Bend National Park. Steep little entry and after a little descent it levels out. Among some trees by the river you can see The Singing Jesus!

Interesting trail with a little history linked to it. The start is somewhat rocky but it levels out into the canyon and continues into the riverbed. Be aware that Mexico is officially on the other side of the river. You may even run into the "singing Jesus" along your travels

This a great hike for kids. I took my 7 yr old and we had fun climbing on the sand on the US side wall in the canyon.
