  • Take a couple hours and drive along the road from chisos basin down to Mexico. Stop at mutiple outlooks and hikes 
  • We traveled the Ross Maxwell Scenic drive while visiting Big Bend NP with our kids (11, 9, 5). You can enter the Road via 2 ways, from main park road (118) or from Santa Elena Canyon from Old Maverick...  more »
  • Second only to the Chisos Basin. Beautiful views along the drive. Many short and long hikes. I was pleasantly surprised that Big Bend was this scenic.
