  • Last time we hiked this trail was 25 years ago and it has changed some by nature. Hard to get to the end now and the sand slide is gone. Still a decent hike though  more »
  • This is not a hike for summer! Some of these canyon hikes are just direct sun - even in September, this hike was too hot to enjoy! Looking forward to trying it again on a winter trip to the park!  more »
  • We will hike this trail again. It's one of our favorites, and suits all skill levels. Had to dip our toes en el Río Grande while we were there! Also bought some killer walking sticks on the trail.  more »

Where to stay in Big Bend National Park

To spend the night in Big Bend National Park, pitch your tent in one of three developed campgrounds or bunk down in one of the rooms or cottages at the Chisos Mountains Lodge. Of the three campgrounds, Chisos Basin, known for colorful mountain sunsets, is easiest to reach. Rio Grande Village and Cottonwood, however, provide scenic settings of their own along the Rio Grande River. A few motels lie just outside the park, but options are limited. If you need a broader range of choices, consider staying in Marfa, a two-hour drive north of the heart of the park.
