One of the more shaded hikes in the Chisos. Great choice is their in the hotter part of the year. Demanding climb, well worth the effort. Can reserve Backpack campsites, but limited so plan ahead.

Nice trail that has many shading areas that you can get relief from the head. Very crowded in late December early January

My father and I backpacked this trail to camp overnight in Boot Canyon via the Colima trail. This trail is a lovely example of the sort of biodiversity you find in the Chisos, with the immediate surroundings fluctuating between desert shrubland and mixed evergreen-broadleaf forest.

There was snow on the trail when I went in early December. I don't recommend taking this trail without good boots and a walking stick if there's still snow around. Slippery!

When you crest the big saddle, make sure you climb the rabbit-track up the rise to the West. A nice view!
Don't miss following the trail to the laguna meadows campsites, as that's where you'll actually see the meadow. Nice place for lunch.
