Beautifully maintained trail with great views and lots of birds and wildlife. The climb on the Pinnacles Trail side can be arduous at times, but generally moderate and a very peasant stroll down the mountain on the Laguna Meadows side.

I've made the trip 7 or 8 times over the last 20 years and it is one of my all time favorites. SW #4 campsite is primo. With a quick walk to rim you will find a natural rock bench on the edge of a cliff where you can take in some of the most spectacular views you will ever find.

Found this to be hard, the extra weight of 3 gallons of water was the killer. Several great views along the way to the final view on south rim. Camped at NE2 and enjoyed the sunrise the next morning. Hike down was just as hard, all in all it was worth it.

Tough! But worth it! Beautiful mountains full of crags and other erosional features. Also, an occasional interesting array of volcanic rock. Massive switchbacks!

Advice: Use this as your trail down out of the High Chisos or from Emory Peak, not up.
