So if you’re in Texas, this is a must see – even though it’s way off the beaten path of the interstates (I think we needed to take a private toll road to get here). This place is so big, and I was there so long ago, that I don’t rightly remember which exact trails I was on. But this place makes an impact, that’s for sure!
My favorite things to do here
- Camp at Chisos Basin
- Trails around toll mountain
- Hiking by the river, Santa Elena Canyon trail
Things I want to come back to do
- Raft the river
- Check out the Rio Grande Village
- Hike to Pine Canyon Falls
- Only 300,000 or so visitors a year (compared to millions in Parks that are less out of the way)
- Don’t cross the river unless you have a passport. You’ll need it to come back.
