Before you hike down into the canyon valley and into Tuff Canyon, be sure to visit the 3 scenic vista platforms that give you splendid views of the Canyon.  My favorite vista is the East Overlook, which allows you to see where the canyon ends.

After you've seen the canyon from above, you can take a separate trail down to the canyon valley and into Tuff Canyon.  The walls on each side of the canyon are quite impressive.

An easy and quick hike.  Must see!

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.
