Lost Mine Trail
14 reviews Big Bend National Park #1 hike out of 94 in
2 hrs 8 min
Great views on this moderate out and back. Steady gains in elevation on the way out and some parts are steeper than others but the trail is well maintained and easy to follow. Views start around mile 1.
There is a small parking area at the trailhead which fills easily during peak season, best to start early to ensure you get a spot.

This is a moderate hike. Clearly marked trail access along the road to Chisos Basin. The trail is well maintained. It starts with easy inclines but gets steeper once you’ve gone about a mile. Switchbacks help to dampen the incline. Some mostly rock areas may be an issue if wet. Great vistas of Juniper Canyon and into Mexico. The rocks, vegetation and birds all add to the reasons to do this hike.★ ★ ★ ★
This is the best moderate hike in the park. Wonderful views. Lost Mine Trail far exceeds the trail to the window and only requires a little more effort. If you are not able to hike all the way to the end, just hike the 3/4 mile to the saddle for a great view of Juniper Canyon. This part is an easy walk with a gradual incline.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
