Owner description: Five-miles round-trip, this trail is fairly easy compared with many other hikes in the park.

This is a great moderate hike with excellent views all around. Some older people consider it difficult though, so keep age in mind. You don't have to hike the whole thing (you can turn around at any point) and the trail is clearly marked (stairs and path most of the way). However, the views on the top are by far the best and definitely worth the effort.

This is a terrific moderate hike with elevation gain. Last two times we did it, it was incredibly windy. This time, we ventured off the Lost Mines Trail and picked our way up towards the back side of Casa Grande until the trail petered out (this section is closed off during Peregrine Falcon nesting season).

The view from Lost Mines Trail takes center stage. A good hike for those wanting views and a more strenuous activity level.

We've made this hike numerous times and each time it's the same hike, but so different. The switch backs make it easy to navigate the half day hike. Once you reach the top you feel like you're on top of the world. Where else can you look down on soaring eagles? Take your time and enjoy the views and different plants and trees on the way.

This hike was the favorite activity of our entire stay in Big Bend. It was a bit strenuous, but the views from the top were worth the effort, and it made for a memorable hike. It was not crowded, even in the busiest time of day.

Our first hike of the holiday and we were first on the trail. It was a great hike with some climbing and a beautiful view at the end. I would recommend starting early as on our way down it was definitely getting busy
