So far, this has been my favorite hike in the Chisos! It goes up a mountain trail with stunning views all the way through. At the beginning of the hike, you can get a little brochure with explanations at numbered stops along the trail on fauna and flora. The trail is 4.8 miles (8 km) round trip with downhill on the way back, and of medium difficulty.
When I went, we were the only ones there, and morning fog would come from the valleys beneath us, it was beautiful!

The beginning of the trail is located along the road to the Chisos Basin ('Basin Road"), before it plunges towards it.

Directions: Chisos Mountains, Big Bend National Park.
