This hike is the second half of a South Rim Loop route that begins at the Laguna Meadow trailhead and ends at the Pinnacles trailhead, starting and ending hikers at the same location in the Chisos Basin. After an overnight along the Southwest Rim, hikers should be refreshed and ready for another day of incredible scenery. Bypass the junction with Boot Canyon Trail and continue around the Basin via the Southeast Rim. Terrific views continue as you complete this section and then promenade around to the Northeast Rim. Weather can be wild and unexpected among the Chisos peaks, so remain vigilant—a fairly straightforward effort, aided by the trail’s uninterrupted line of sight.
