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.
Visiting The Window Trail and Chisos Mountains will get you outdoors. Your inner history buff will appreciate Terlingua and Ghost Town Texas. Change things up with a short trip to Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center in Terlingua (about 1h 35 min away). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Hot Springs Historic District, take a memorable drive along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, and trek along S Rim Trail.

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read Big Bend National Park route planner.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 100°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
