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 Cattail Falls Trail and Chisos Mountains. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lajitas Zipline and Lower Burro Mesa Pour-off Trail. Next up on the itinerary: explore the stunning scenery at Tuff Canyon Trail, explore the striking landscape of Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail, trek along Lost Mine Trail, and make a trip to Boquillas Crossing Port of Entry.
