An unmarked road off of the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive takes you to the trailhead. This hike totals about 2.5 miles, mostly sunny until you reach Cattail Falls and the oasis the waterfall provides in the desert climate. Bring plenty of water as there's not much shade on this hike.
The first part of the hike is climbing a number of stairs but you're too distracted by the great view to mind. Once you reach the canyon you're treated to magnificent rock faces on each side of the Rio Grande. Kayakers finishing their Big Bend Rio Grand River trip pass by every so often to land near the trailhead.
Nice quick hike as you wait to view the sunset through The Window. My wife and I saw some deer in the trail and saw some different types of droppings so obviously some wildlife in the area. Pretty good view of The Window and some nice shade from good size trees.
