Sunny Hike to Big Bend Oasis
Big Bend - Cattail Falls Trail - 3/4/2016  [View Log Page]
Rating: 3point5stars Difficulty: 2stars Solitude: 3stars
Distance: 2.50 Miles Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes

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. 

Popular Hike to Magnificent View of Santa Elena Canyon
Big Bend - Santa Elena Canyon - 3/4/2016  [View Log Page]
Rating: 4stars Difficulty: 2stars Solitude: 1star
Distance: 1.70 Miles Duration: 1 hour, 5 minutes

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. 

Easy Hike - Nice view of The Window
Big Bend - Basin Loop - 3/3/2016  [View Log Page]
Rating: 3stars Difficulty: 1point5stars Solitude: 1point5stars
Distance: 1.75 Miles Duration: 40 minutes

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.
