“This 4.8 mile roundtrip route will take you to some stunning views overlooking the Chisos Mountains.”— Caleb Joyce
Be sure to pick up a trail tour brochure at the trailhead, as it outlines much of the local flora and fauna visible from the trail. It's also advised to bring lots of water due to the heat, high altitude and elevation gain. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the top. What better way to soak up the views before heading back down the trail?
The trailhead is located at the 5.1 mile mark on the Basin Road. Parking is limited, so it's recommended that you arrive early.
