on Lost Mine Trail

Gorgeous view

Definitely a challenging hike but worth the views at the top! Climb to the very peak if you are brave enough - it’s beautiful! We did this on a rather warm day in September; thankfully it got cooler the further we went up, but the way back we definitely felt the heat. We started at 1030am and we were back around 4 or 430. Total time of actual hiking was about 4 1/2 hours (we are in our 30’s and do CrossFit.. we booked it on the way back..don’t get me wrong though, this was a tough hike!)

Great trail with plenty of shade along the way & not as difficult of a scramble to the peak as anticipated. Did this trail first in the morning then completed Lost Mine trail.

Good trail with great views. Also saw a black bear from a distance, but it didn't get close.

Magnificent views, and a good chance to see a black bear.

A good decent workout with great views! Saw a black bear sow and cubs. Signs of Moutain lion. Clouds swirling around Casa Grande at sunset were sublime.

Today was my second time attempting this hike. Last year, I hiked it at the beginning of August and it was about 72 degrees. It was breezy, so it was bearable! Amazing views the entire way. The top was the best part. Today we encountered a lot of clouds/ mist, so we only went up to the mile mark. However, just before we got onto the trail, we came face to face with a bear just past the parking lot. Due to the excessive rain/ time of year, the bears are more active (an abundance of berries etc)! One of the best hikes in the park!

Nice views

Good views of Pine Valley Canyon and waterfall

Fantastic hike if you are looking for an afternoon or morning hike in Big Bend. There is an excellent view just a mile up or so at a saddle if you are in a big hurry, but the view from the top is even better. The hike starts with a light to moderate incline through pinyon pine forest before climbing some steeper switchbacks towards the end. In early March, temperatures were in the mid 70s with low humidity. It can get breezy since you are in a mountain gap however, so be prepared.

Fantastic hike through the forested north side of casa grande. The guide said you only need to hike about a mile to get one of the best views in the park and I couldnt agree more. Ended up going all the way to the top and enjoyed the rest of the hike but the views didnt get much better since some rain showers and fog made visibility drop considerably. Took about 3 hours round trip. 2 hours up and 1 hour to come down. My GPS showed the distance as 5 miles total

It was awesome! Loved this trail.

Great hike. Not too difficult. Bears reported but we didn’t see any.

Ok. Didn’t make the last 50 feet. For rock climbing, brave souls, the last 50 feet is probably worth it! But for safety minded folks, we chose to stop just short of peek. Worth the climb!

Steep climb. Amazing views. Well shaded.

Completed this trail in August 2018. It was our 1st time in Big Bend and the 1st hike we completed in the park. We began at 5pm and it took a couple of hours to complete. Afternoon clouds helped with the August heat and made it bearable. The gorgeous views begin as soon as you start the trail and never stop. We received word of a Mountain Lion at the top, but we continued on and never saw it. A beautiful hike! Must do when in BBNP!

Loved this hike! Great steady hike up the mountain with plenty of shade. I hiked in early am so the first three quarters of the hike was in the shade with the mountains blocking the sun. Once I got past the bear canisters, majority was in the sun and the trail got a lot rockier. I was a little freaked out by all the warnings about the 25 ft scramble at the top from other reviews here on AllTrails...WAY over hyped. Not that challenging or intimidating and afforded breathtaking views. I can easily see why this is the top rated trail in the park...it’s awesome!

Overall about a 3-hour hike. Loved the views, sounds, and cactuses along the way. It’s a bit steep, more towards the end. The top view is totally worth it! Be sure to get there early to get a parking spot.

Great hike with beautiful views every step of the way! We started out around 8am on a July day and had a nice breeze and plenty of shaded spots throughout our hike.

Great trail to start off Big Bend with for me, nice and easy climb to the summit, great views from the top, I did hike in middle of July with about a 4:30pm start in 98 degree heat, only drank 2 liters of water. Hike was fairly quick but I did spend a lot of time up top with my GoPro. Definitely recommend this for even the beginner hiker.

Steep at times, this is a nice trail with some great views towards the end. People afraid of heights will be ok, they just might not want to stand to close to the edges. Lots of switchbacks, but nothing too serious. Small parking lot, so get there early to get a spot and avoid the crowds. We passed tons of people on our way down.

Second time doing this hike. The most popular in Big Bend for good reason! One of my favorite parts is if you hike early you get to be in the shade for most of the hike- which is a rarity in the park. Our five year old kids were able to complete it on their own (with minimal cajoling).

Enjoyable moderately easy hike. Can be done quickly but best with several stops along the way as it offers several great views along the route. Nothing treacherous along the way and the views at the top are great!
