  • From Rio Village Campground it is ~ 6 mile to the parking lot at Boquillas Canyon. A winding road with a lot of altitude differences. The parking lot can accommodate about 20 vehicles so the chances of you misgrabbing is sure. The trail is not difficult and runs in part along the Rio Grande. A pity is that the trail stops well before the opening of the canyon, so that a glimpse into the canyon is not possible. On the way you will encounter a number of Mexicans with their souvenirs. Handmade wire figures and colorful canes. We expected a little more from the trail
