The Fresno Rim Trail goes to an impressive overlook of expansive Fresno Canyon, the very large drainage on the east side of Big Bend Ranch State Park. Beyond the canyon rise the peaks and cliffs of the Solitario. From a high aerial viewpoint, the Solitario looks like a massive crater created by the impact of a large meteorite. However, it’s actually the eroded remains of a large dome pushed up by a granite laccolith millions of years ago.
