Emory Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Summiting Emory Peak should be a goal for every hiker who spends time in Big Bend National Park. While the Emory Peak Trail is a short, 1-mile ascent, the vertical hike to the trail’s junction and back will take a good part of the day. (Be advised that the final 25 feet to the summit is a steep and rough climb; hikers who suffer vertigo should avoid it.) The Emory Peak Trail is also a perfect detour for those attempting the entire South Rim Loop."
