Possibly the quintessential hike in Big Bend National Park, the Lost Mine Trail offers hikers magnificent views and access to the variety in geological formation, plants and animals of the Chisos. It is a moderately difficult hike of 4.8 miles roundtrip, in close proximity to the Basin. The trail starts at an elevation of 5,600' and steadily climbs to the top of a 6,850' promontory overlooking Pine and Juniper Canyons.
