Tuff Canyon Trail is a 0.6 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Big Bend National Park, Texas that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October.
This short hike highlights some of the varied and interesting rock formations that can be found in Big Bend. Start off near the waypoint marked "Trailhead" and follow the path of the trail towards the southwest. Off in the distance sits Castellan Mountain, which dominates the sky in this part of the park. The path slopes down to the mouth of the canyon and then makes a near 180 degree turn and heads northeast into the canyon.
Very short walk to the overlook areas. Much more fun to head down and hike in the canyon itself.
Off of Ross Maxwell Drive. You can see nearly all of the canyon from the overlook. The makeup of the rock is volcanic ash. Very interesting.
Great trail for the kids very short and fun canyon to play in.
