Hiking the Window Trail in Big Bend National Park

One of our favorite hikes from the Chisos Basin area of Big Bend National Park, the 5.6 mile Window Trail.  Here's what the park's website says about the trail.

Window Trail
Medium, 5.6 miles round trip.Begin at Basin trailhead.
This trail leads down to the Window, offering views of the Window and desert beyond along the way. During wetter periods Oak Creek may be flowing, and must be crossed several times. Use caution on this trail: the top of the Window pour-off is slickrock with no railings, and the return hike is uphill.
