Miles Hiked: 4.80 Miles  Elapsed Time: 4 hours

Comments: My father (60 years old) and I arrived in the Basin around 11:00 AM and decided to loosen up our legs on the Lost Mines trail. This is the best hike for hikers of all abilities. It is very laid back and easy to complete with a moderate level of effort. The best part is the unbelievable views when are at the end of the trail! This trail is every bit as spectacular as any other in the park. If you are pressed for time, or just do not want to hike all day, then I suggest this hike highly.

The scenic wonders of the undeveloped Chihuahuan Desert beckon hikers with seemingly endless miles of trails in Big Bend National Park. The park is the largest tract of public land in Texas, with more than 1,200 square miles sprawled across West Texas along the Rio Grande. Hiking trails wander through deep canyons to spring-fed oases and to the tops of the forested Chisos Mountains. Written with assistance from Big Bend National Park staff, Hiking Big Bend National Park is the only comprehensive hiking guide to the many trials in this unique national park and will guide you to little-known places as well as the popular areas. Three trails in nearby Big Bend Ranch State Park also are featured. This guide includes safety descriptions, elevation charts, black-and-white photos, and up-to-date maps and reference information. Hiking Big Bend National Park is an invaluable resource for planning your next hiking trip in Texas's Big Bend Country.
