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 your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, steep yourself in history at Hot Springs Historic District, explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, and trek along The Window Trail.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Big Bend National Park fast, fun, and easy.

Expect a daytime high around 87°F in April, and nighttime lows around 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
