Follow Laguna Meadow Trail from the Chisos Basin to the meadow climbing 1,600 feet in 3.3 miles, or take Pinnacles Trail into the Chisos Mountains from the Basin. Both paths cut through a juniper, pinyon pine, and Texas madrone forest to a high saddle between Toll Mountain and Emory Peak; Pinnacles continues to the sheer cliffs of Boot Canyon, where a labyrinth of desert paths chart the valley below.

  • Hike up Pinnacles Trail 3.5 miles to Emory Peak, and hike back down the Laguna Meadow Trail 3.3 miles to the basin where you started.
  • This hike has a 1,700-foot elevation gain so it can be a bit strenuous for some hikers not in the best shape.
  • To get to the trailhead, start on the Basin Loop Trail in the Chisos Basin.
