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.
Step out of the city life by going to Cattail Falls Trail and Ernst Tinaja Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lajitas Zipline and Closed Canyon. Next up on the itinerary: explore the stunning scenery at Tuff Canyon Trail, stroll through Pine Canyon Trail, make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, and contemplate the long history of Homer Wilson Ranch.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park trip planner.

In August, daytime highs in Big Bend National Park are 96°F, while nighttime lows are 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
