End your day at Big Bend National Park with a classic Big Bend sunset.

If you're staying at Chisos Basin, the sunset at Window View Trail is one to see. The Window View Trail is a paved, wheelchair-accessible, 0.3 mile loop that starts near the Chisos Basin Store and leads to a viewpoint.

The viewpoint provides an excellent view of the desert floor framed by the Chisos Mountains. Catching the sunset is an excellent way to end your day at Big Bend before staying at Chisos Mountain Lodge or camping at Chisos Basin Campground.

Pets are not allowed on trails. For more pet info check out Big Bend's NPS.gov page.
