Big Bend, Texas
No wilderness experience in Texas is quite like Big Bend National Park. More than 800,000 acres of mountains, desert, and river provide endless spaces to explore. With jagged peaks sheltering pine forests more typical of New Mexico or Colorado; canyons more steep, sheer, and narrow than any found in the Grand Canyon; the sprawling Chihuahuan Desert; the Rio Grande in its robust, untamed glory; it's as if Big Bend was transplanted here from somewhere else.
Come hike in the Chisos Mountains, canoe down the Rio Grande, relax in a natural hot springs, or unwind under the sparkling night sky. Big Bend offers something for everyone and a one-of-a-kind wilderness experience.
