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.
Big Bend National Park is known for nature, trails, historic sites, scenic drive, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, hike along Lost Mine Trail, take a memorable drive along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, and explore the stunning scenery at Boquillas Canyon.

Plan my Big Bend National Park trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

In November, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 73°F, while at night they dip to 48°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
