Tuff Canyon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Tuff Canyon is a small, narrow, sheer-walled canyon carved into a layer of light gray tuff by Blue Creek, one of the largest drainages of the Chisos Mountains. The tuff was created during an explosive volcanic eruption that blew the molten rock into small particles, or ash. As this hot, glowing ash settled back to the ground, heat and the pressure of overlying layers hardened the ash into a soft rock called tuff. Water easily eroded this tuff into a canyon along Blue Creek."
