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 Chisos Mountains and Lost Mine Trail will get you outdoors. Take a break from Big Bend National Park with a short trip to Big Bend Ranch State Park in Presidio, about 1h 05 min away. There's lots more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Emory Peak, admire all the interesting features of Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, and play a few rounds at Black Jack's Crossing Golf Course.

Plan my trip to Big Bend National Park with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

June in Big Bend National Park sees daily highs of 100°F and lows of 75°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
