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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes The Balanced Rock. Step out of the city life by going to Closed Canyon and Chihuahuan Desert. Your inner history buff will appreciate Castolon Historic District and Hot Springs Historic District. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Big Bend National Park: Terlingua (Indian Head Trail, Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center, &more). There's still lots to do: hike along Ernst Tinaja Trail, steep yourself in history at Homer Wilson Ranch, stroll through Lower Burro Mesa Pour-off Trail, and tee off at Lajitas Zipline.

Plan trip to Big Bend National Park with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
