Comments: Wow, what a hike! The reward at the end of this hike would make it worth it even if there were ten miles instead of two to get there. The window is beautiful - nice breeze, quiet, everything is great there. Saw a nice black turantula on the way out, a huge scorpion on the way back, and right as we came up towards the beginning of the trail on the way back, we saw a group of wild boar pretty close to us. Definitely recommend this one!

The scenic wonders of the undeveloped Chihuahuan Desert beckon hikers with seemingly endless miles of trails in Big Bend National Park. The park is the largest tract of public land in Texas, with more than 1,200 square miles sprawled across West Texas along the Rio Grande. 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.
