This little known gem has the best view of the Chisos, but you won't see it in commercial photography. The trail may not look long, but the climb is hard core! Pack up a chilled frosty, the enjoy a return trip that only requires a few pedal strokes. Remember, you are in a very remote location that you are unfamiliar with, so keep your speed in check.
