One of my favorite views from my trip to Big Bend NP in June 2019! Lost Mine Trail (4.8 miles; Moderate). Anybody else have some favorite Big Bend / West Texas trails?

That's a great view! What elevation gain to where you in that spot? We will be in Big Bend in June (hopefully) and will be looking for hiking trails. Any other trails you have hiked and would recommend that are at most moderate?

This photo was taken at the end of the Lost Mine Trail (approx. 1100 ft gain over 2.5 miles), actually fairly strenuous in my opinion but well worth it if it's a clear day! The Window Trail in Chisos Basin is another Moderate trail very close to Lost Mine.

What trails would you recommend for those who are 'seasoned' but in good shape?

Here are some trail breakdowns from the Big Bend Visitors Guide! I spent most of my time in the Chisos Mountains (as we also camped there. The Chisos Basin Campground is stunning! Will have to track down pictures from our campsite)
