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.
Visiting Closed Canyon and Chisos Mountains will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lajitas Zipline and Ernst Tinaja Trail. There's lots more to do: hike along Lost Mine Trail, take in the dramatic scenery at Cattail Falls Trail, explore the striking landscape of Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail, and stroll through Pine Canyon Trail.

For photos, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Big Bend National Park trip itinerary maker app .

In May, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 93°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
