The Window Trail can mean two different things. There is The Window Loop Trail which is a .3 mile loop that is paved and handicapped accessible, and a 5.6 mile hike out to the actual window that descends 980 feet (remember that also means a 980 foot ascent on the way back). I took the short Window Loop Trail which offered a nice view of the window and the basin beyond. I walked a short distance down the other trail too just to get a feel for it. The trailheads for the window trails are located at the Chisos Basin Parking Area, and there are a number of other trailheads here too.

Equipment: Good walking shoes, plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, a camera for the beautiful scenery.
