Maybe the best hike in Big Bend

Trail View
The South Rim trail starts off easy, but you can see in the distance where this will take you.

We combined both the South Rim and Emory Peak on this day hike.  Not really recommended to do both of these in a day as we were spent afterwards.  The views on the South Rim (though a bit hazy) were spectacular.  I think a better option may be the camp near the rim and make this a two day trip to really have some time to explore and soak up the scenery.
