This is a trail near the lodge at the top of the Chisos Mountains.  This trail offers beautiful views of the Chisos Mountains and the Basin.  Make sure you take plenty of water as this trail can be difficult, mainly because of the incline; however, the view at the top of the trail is a must see.  Deer often are seen in the tree lines and of course there are signs to watch out for mountain lions and black bears.  You are in the mountains remember!  I actually prefer this trail over the Window trail because of the views.  If you time the hike just right in the spring, you will see lots of cacti blooming magnificent colors - deep reds, purple, orange and yellow blooms.
