This was our first hike in Big Bend. We entered the park at the Persimmon Gap Visitor Center. No one was there so we proceeded approximately three miles to the trail head. The trail is treeless and not particularly pretty until you get near the canyon. There the vegetation becomes quite lush along the canyon walls and birds seem to be everywhere. The last part of the hike is in sandy washes leading to and from the canyon. We were not paying close attention to where we entered the wash and it caused us to backtrack a little bit when climbing out. There is a sign but if you aren't looking for it you can easily miss it. We did not meet anyone else on the hike. This short hike was a great way get out of the car after a long drive and stretch ones legs.
