Great day doing a loop hike to the south rim and back. Along the way tagged Toll, Emory, and Townsend. Very pretty area. Trip Report
Most overrated peak on the continent.
The bushwhack was not too hard at all. Not too many cactus. The trees up top were a little annoying, but the views of Casa Grande and Crown mountain were awesome.
Plenty of trees. Short hikes away from the top give good views into the basin, through the window, etc.
Short sidetrip from the South Rim/Emory Peak trail--disappointing views on top owing to the thick tree cover. Continued on to Emory Peak, and looped around the South Rim (best views of the day).
Second day of a four-day trip to Big Bend with my gf. Unsettled weather started moving in, and clouds enshrouded the Chisos Mtns by the time we returned to the visitor center in the evening.
I liked the view of Casa Grande.
Not much view. Lot of trees on top. Not much sign of wildlife.
