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 Big Bend Ranch State Park and Lost Mine Trail will get you outdoors. Step out of Big Bend National Park with an excursion to Terlingua Trading Company in Terlingua--about 1h 30 min away. Spend the 6th (Tue) exploring nature at Big Bend National Park. There's more to do: mingle with the ghosts of the past at Terlingua.
