This trail is short but sweet. The Nature signs or markers have long since vanished, but it's still a peaceful walk, especially in the evening. As the sun sank down in the sky, the colors of the sky were beautiful. Good tennis shoes are a...More

Better to visit early morning or evening - this trail starts at campground, is pretty busy and well used. Fabulous view over Rio Bravo and into mexico

This trail is in the campground 18. You can park your car and walk around. The trail is first in some swampy land you are walking on bridges before you head into the warm sun on a hill. It was just too hot to walk...More

This is an easy, short hike but gives you great elevation for watching the sunset. We could see across to Boquillas behind us and the sunset in front.

This is so cool. you can walk in the river and get as close to the line as possible without crossing. This hike was so amazing, there are great views of the canyon walls as the sun sets. It takes about an hour to walk...More

This was an easy hike and easy climb for the views. But really worth it if you are in that part of the park. I wouldn't go there just for that though. The view of the Rio Grande from here is beautiful.
