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 Lajitas Zipline and Lower Burro Mesa Pour-off Trail. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Closed Canyon and Tuff Canyon Trail. And it doesn't end there: delve into the mystery of Chihuahuan Desert, stroll through Pine Canyon Trail, examine the collection at Big Bend National Park - Fossil Bone Exhibit, and explore the striking landscape of Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park trip planning website .

In June in Big Bend National Park, expect temperatures between 100°F during the day and 75°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
