I went in January, and it was a very pleasant trail in the cool weather. In the summer, this would be trail I would only hike very early in the day because there are long stretches with no shade. It isn't too hard, but there are elevation gains that lead to great views of the desert and mountains. If I had limited time in the Park, I don't think I would prioritize this trail. That being said, the view is beautiful and unique to this trail.

Nice short trail, fairly level, hot, little shade. Great scenery. Cotton trees at Spring not a lot else. Watch out for rattlesnakes!
We did this trail in the morning on our way to Sant Elena Canyon.

Well we went to Big Bend National Park in October and that may be one of the best times to visit (although November or April are also good months). It is a low desert place and it best visited when it is not hot or even very warm. Stay at the Chisos Mountain Lodge and you can explore the entire Park in three days.

We chose to start this trail after seeing the Santa Elena Canyon earlier in the morning. It is very rocky and deceiving. The trail leads past tall trees on occasion but not water. Since it was so terribly hot we finally turned back after about an hour and a half. Not sure if we missed the spring or not. It may have been dried up.
I would like to do this again but much earlier in the day.

A very pleasant trail to walk, not much elevation changes. Beautiful, beautiful landscape just attracts you to explore. The Mule ears peak look very different from each angle you get to along the trail. All the colors, from the grass, trees, mountains, flowers, just so perfectly lay out in front of you!
