This may have great scenery if the leaves are changing. As it was when I did the hike (late October) everything was very green. There is some pretty scenery and the hike is easy with a climb that is strenuous but short. The camping during fall is very crowded, usually filling up months before the leaves change. The view from the top of the scenic overlook leaves much to be desired. I think Lost Maples is highly overrated.

Hiked the West Loop approximately 5 miles. Nice change in elevation, 425 feet. Hiked trail clockwise. Elevation change at first of hike. Last part of hike was down hill. Also towards end, much water in creeks and ponds. A number of others were fishing.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hike - very pretty with diverse scenery, cliffs, river, pools etc. I enjoyed this more than some of the hikes in Big Bend.
