Location: Big Bend - Burro Mesa Pouroff

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 1.00 Mile  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: This is a very short walk into a box canyon which gets the pouroff from a large area through a slot above much like the Window. A much more interesting and challenging alternative for the Texas hiker is hiking to the top of Burro Mesa Pour off. This is aa 3.5 to 4 mile round trip through a vally into a narrow canyon for about 3/4 mile which requires some scrambling and boulder hopping. This canyon leads to a confluence with a wide wash which ultimately takes you into an ever narrowing canyon with steep walls that ends with the slot that pours off. Intersting and fun hike.
