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.
Take a break from the city and head to Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail and Closed Canyon. Popular historic sites such as Homer Wilson Ranch and Terlingua are in your itinerary. There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Lajitas Zipline, hike along Lower Burro Mesa Pour-off Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Cattail Falls Trail, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Castolon Historic District.

To find traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, use the Big Bend National Park trip planning website .

July in Big Bend National Park sees daily highs of 99°F and lows of 76°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
