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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lajitas Zipline and Cattail Falls Trail. Take a break from the city and head to Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail and Chihuahuan Desert. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Castolon Historic District, trek along Lower Burro Mesa Pour-off Trail, stroll through Pine Canyon Trail, and take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains.

For reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Big Bend National Park road trip site.

In July, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach °F, while at night they dip to °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
