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 off the beaten path and head to Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail and Cattail Falls Trail. Get some historical perspective at Homer Wilson Ranch and Castolon Historic District. The adventure continues: hike along Closed Canyon, see a world frozen in time at Terlingua, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, and stroll through Ernst Tinaja Trail.
