Window Trail, Big Bend National Park

The center of Big Bend National Park is the start of many Chisos Mountain hikes, including The Window trail.  Here's what the park's website says about this satisfying day hike:

"Window Trail
Difficulty: Moderate; Distance:, 5.6 miles round trip
Begin at the Chisos Basin Trailhead

This trail descends through Oak Creek Canyon to the Window pour-off which frames panoramic desert vistas. 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."
