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.
Get outdoors at Chisos Mountains and Lost Mine Trail. And it doesn't end there: take in breathtaking views at Santa Elena Canyon, make a trip to Rio Grande Village, hike along Ernst Tinaja Trail, and stroll through The Window Trail.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Big Bend National Park trip itinerary planning site .

In July, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 99°F, while at night they dip to 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
