Comments: They say this is the "hike" that anyone worth their mettle should do. I agree; I can''t think of a trek in Texas tougher and more awe inspiring. Let me know if I am missing one. Took a leisurely 3 days on this bad boy. Camped night 1 at Pinnacles and night 2 at Boot Canyon. Side trip to Emory Peak on morning of day 2. Luckily there was plenty of water in Boot Springs; thought we had enough but you really go through it. The loop? My gosh - enough said.

Hiking trails wander through deep canyons to spring-fed oases and to the tops of the forested Chisos Mountains. Written with assistance from Big Bend National Park staff, Hiking Big Bend National Park is the only comprehensive hiking guide to the many trials in this unique national park and will guide you to little-known places as well as the popular areas. Three trails in nearby Big Bend Ranch State Park also are featured. This guide includes safety descriptions, elevation charts, black-and-white photos, and up-to-date maps and reference information. Hiking Big Bend National Park is an invaluable resource for planning your next hiking trip in Texas's Big Bend Country.
