All down hill into the valley of the window, really cool view at the end; all uphill in the way back. HOT

We only did the lookout because there wasn't enough time to make it to the window before it was dark due to hiking to Emory Peak during the day.

Recommend taking Oak Spring trail (extra ~1/2mi OW) just above the Window to get an open view that is obstructed by the walls at the Window itself.

Beautiful hike. Downhill going, uphill entire way back. View was worth it. We saw a mama bear with her 3 cubs.

The last 1/4 mile is so much fun! The stairs in the side of the riverbed were a blast, even for the kids in our group.

A must do from the Chisos Basin Campground. Make sure you go to the end and take plenty of water. It can get hot. The spring was flowing too.

Christy mike Katy. Temp was 68-70F. Cool, wore 2 shirts and pants. River was flowing for the last 0.1mi near the window.

After the recent rain portions of the trail were running deep enough where wet shoes were all but guaranteed!

A bit shorter from the Basin campground, but I combined it with the Oak Creek trail for a long out and back from Basin.

Beautiful once you get to creek bed with lots of shade for lower 1/2. Little slippery at final point on well worn rock. Amazing views!!!

Great hike. Coming back was mostly up hill
Views were awesome. There were little butterflies everywhere and spring flowers were gorgeous.

Took the oak creek spur to go along the canyon rim - adds some elevation, but not too strenuous and the views are worth the effort.

Out and back= 11.2 Excellent and very scenic trail!

Absolutely beautiful view. The hike itself is breathtaking as you approach the window it's even more. Sunset is the best but be prepared to hike back

Definitely hike this earlier in the day. Sun really beat us down in the canyon. View at the end is superb.

Downhill going out...uphill coming back. Incredible surprise at the end. View is amazing. Great place for a picnic lunch!
