Going up (literally!) took quite a bit longer than coming down but once at the summit, you will witness a spectacular view! There was quite a bit of traffic on the trail but with everyone going at their own pace you can feel "alone" at times. Everyone that goes to Big Bend should do this hike preferably as one of your first hikes!
