  • This hike is all uphill going in and takes over 3 hours round trip. You are rewarded for you effort with all of the views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. About a mile in you get a good look ...  more »
  • The Lost Mine Trail is a nice and easy hike. There are several good lookout areas for photo's. If it is a hot day, this is a much cooler hike than some of the other options.  more »
  • Although a steep hike up, it was well worth the views, plants, trees, flowers and quiet. Once at the peak, the view (on a clear day) lets you see all the way into Mexico, Rio Grande, etc.  more »

  • Awesome trail. Great views the whole way. Really great end as well. I'd recommend carving out a good chunk of time to do this trail. Allow yourself to take your time. About 3-4 hours. Plan to spend about an hour on the top just enjoying the view and eating lunch or something.
  • Fun easy hike.
  • We had a great time hiking there. A MUST to do in Big Bend.
  • The end is worth it.
  • This was awesome! Saw a bear! The views were amazing and the weather was perfect.

Where to stay in Big Bend National Park

To spend the night in Big Bend National Park, pitch your tent in one of three developed campgrounds or bunk down in one of the rooms or cottages at the Chisos Mountains Lodge. Of the three campgrounds, Chisos Basin, known for colorful mountain sunsets, is easiest to reach. Rio Grande Village and Cottonwood, however, provide scenic settings of their own along the Rio Grande River. A few motels lie just outside the park, but options are limited. If you need a broader range of choices, consider staying in Marfa, a two-hour drive north of the heart of the park.
