It is well worth driving to West Texas to visit this park. In my opion, it is right up there next to the Grand Canyon in its awesomeness. Don't advise going in the summer when temps are said to reach 110 degrees.

Here's our Big Bend itinerary in hopes that you see yourself making the trip! First: May can be brutally hot. We got lucky in that the weather stayed below 100degrees most of the time. On the other hand, with water and preparation - we had...More

The scenery was pretty, especially the drive from marfa to bbnp. By late may we saw temps reach 110 degrees. Ideal for campers, hikers,off road vehicles. Not much for older couples to do unless you can hike. Would have enjoyed it more in my 30’s...More

Spend the morning there as early as you can when it's cool and much less crowded than the afternoon. Head to the centre, the Chisos basin and hike up any of the trails. Fabulous views and escape.

I highly recommend visiting Santa Elena Canyon - do the hike. To reach here you would have travelled Ross Maxwell Scenic drive, which is a beautiful drive.
