If all of Texas’s parks were royalty, then Big Bend would be the exquisite crown jewel. The crème de la crème of Lone Star State parks, Big Bend is known for its size (801,163 acres), it’s vast diversity in elevation (as high as 7,832 feet in the Chisos Mountains and as low as 1,800 feet in the Rio Grande river valley), its assorted biology (1,200 species of plants, 450 birds, 75 mammals and 56 reptiles), it’s important paleontology and archeology (artifacts as old as 9,000 years old!) and over 1,000 miles of international boundary shared with Mexico along the Rio Grande (Río Bravo in Spanish). All this and Big Bend is still considered one of the most underrated, most remote and least visited parks in the lower 48 - lucky for you! Big Bend is particularly exciting for hikers and backpackers, who can choose between Chimneys Trail, Marufo Vega Trail, Outer Mountain Loop or any number of the endless other options. Oh and did we almost forget to mention that this is one of the best places in the United States for stargazing? Come check out the majesty of this special park for yourself!
