Ojito Adentro Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The trailhead to Ojito Adentro not only marks the trail but provides hikers with an overlook of where they will end up. The arroyo that travels northeast from the trailhead ends in a cleft populated with a dense cluster of vegetation, interrupting an otherwise earthy colorscape with a sweep of bright green. Such is the nature of spring areas in this desert where long, uninterrupted vistas often offer trekkers with a view of distant but welcomed water sources. The Ojito Adentro Trail leads across a hot but mercifully short stretch of desert to a shady, cool oasis.

The translation of “Ojito Adentro” is a charming one, where the diminutive suffix “ito” is added to “ojo,” meaning both “eye” and “spring.” Adentro is, in fact, an adverb rather than an adjective, and means “within.” Hikers who view the geography from the trailhead will begin to understand why Ojito Adentro is called “the little spring within” and will appreciate it fully once they are embraced by the spring’s cozy confines."

"Ojito Adentro is a beautiful lush spring tucked into a rocky canyon surrounded by harsh dry Chihuahuan Desert. The bright green ribbon of cottonwood and willow trees visible from the parking lot creates a sharp contrast with the dry, rugged slopes of Agua Adentro Mountain towering above. Big Bend Ranch State Park lies entirely within the desert but is noteworthy for the large number of springs and seeps within its boundaries."
