Situated where the Rio Grande River takes a big southerly dip in West Texas, Big Bend National Park covers a massive expanse of desert, woodlands, and grasslands full of rivers, limestone canyons, and high mountains. Nearly 2,000 species of plant and animal life call this place home.
Get outdoors at Chisos Mountains and Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive. Go for a jaunt from Big Bend National Park to Presidio to see Big Bend Ranch State Park about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: stroll through Lost Mine Trail, see the interesting displays at Big Bend National Park - Fossil Bone Exhibit, explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, and take in the dramatic natural features at Sand Slide.
