Great hike, our 10 year old was able to do it with us. Different points of the trail had great views and the view at the top was amazing.
Very decent and moderate trail. Not too steep and well maintained. Some excellent views especially at the peak.
What a great hike with wonderful views. I loved climbing the rocks at the end. Up in 1 1/2 hrs, down in 1 hr.
Great "bang for your buck" trail. Only went a mile up since we squeezed in after Emory peak, but there is a ridge almost exactly a mile in that is worth going out on to get a perfect view of several Chisos valleys
Bring water and a snack. Great views.
