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.
Escape the urban bustle at Big Bend Ranch State Park and Santa Elena Canyon. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, trek along Lost Mine Trail, and kick your exploration up a notch at Lajitas Zipline.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Big Bend National Park trip simple and quick.

Expect a daytime high around 93°F in May, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
