Ernst Tinaja Professional Review and Guide
"Ernst Tinaja is one of the most intriguing yearround sources of fresh water in the park. While the trail is relatively short and straightforward, the drive to the trailhead is long, bumpy, and requires a good vehicle with high clearance. Check at the ranger station in Panther Junction for road conditions. As you meander up the dry arroyo to Ernst Tinaja, you’ll encounter a lesson in Big Bend geology. The arroyo becomes progressively deeper, thus exposing older and older layers of rock."
