Did a little driving out on the jeep roads, checking out the rocks. Drove down to the solitario. Stayed in the bunkhouse at Sauceda.

Stunningly beautiful scenery. A great one-and-a-half to three-hour drive depending on how much you stop. Very twisty road with lots of sharp up-and-down. The Rio Grande is right there much of the time. We stopped to hike Closed Canyon and to see the Hoodoos, both...More

We live in East Texas, so this is completely different flora, fauna, and terrain. Geologically speaking, Big Bend is a must see. Three mountain ranges come together here. There are numerous short and long hikes in the park for varying skill levels. Be mindful that...More

There’s are a lot of short trails and campsites that stem from the River Road that runs through the park with access to the river for boating. Nothing here is as impressive as you will see in Big Bend National Park. Might be nice for...More

This state park is incredible diverse and truly offers something for everyone. The drive along the River Road, Highway 170, is worth the drive alone from Presidio to Terlingua. It's breathtaking, and there are a number of short hikes and some campgrounds. If you can,...More

Don't miss this state park if you're in West Texas. The park ranger in neighboring Big Bend NP recommended the drive along Hwy 170 in BBRSP for river views of the Rio Grande, which you don't get as much in the national park. We're so...More

There are great trails to hike and views along highway 170, along the Rio Grande River. This year I hiked the short Hoodoos Trail and Closed Canyon Trail. Both were worth seeing and are rated easy. I love the great views along this stretch of...More
