If you have any legs left after hiking Big Bend, take on these hikes. No? No worries - there's an amazing scenic drive to lookout spots that let you see clear across the county. On-site restaurant serves the basics and you need only leave if you want to go to the Observatory - and you do.

So I am an avid hiker and am currently training for a hike down the Grand Canyon next April, so I didn't mind the elevated climbs of Mesquite Quail to Indian lodge trails. What I did mind was the abundance of loose rocks on the trail that kept me from being able to ever take my eyes off the trail.... More

We did the 3.5 mile hike to the top of the mountain overlooking Indian Lodge and it was really nice... actually a bit steep in places, but good exercise. The lodge is really neat to walk through and learn about the history of the park. We also enjoyed the new bird blind... it has a poster explaining all of the... More

nice clean park with a scenic and rugged 4+ mile hike on the original CCC access trail. also worth seeing the CCC Indian Lodge scenicly nestled at the back of the Park. If you hike, there is a clean and spacious shower on the main road from the Interpretive Center to the Exit. I just wish it didn't cost $6/day... More

We hiked several of the trails and enjoyed the views. Skyline drive provided us with the opportunity to view the entire area, enjoy the wonderful views and... More

Super friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, peace and quiet. There were a few hiking trails that we went on, Well marked and maintained. Shower facilities were neat and clean. Next time we may try to stay at the Indian Lodge, right next door. The only downfall to the RV site was the sewer drain at the site. It was at an... More

This is our second year to stay a week and we love it here. The drive up to Skyline drive at sunrise and sunset is amazing. The hiking paths have varied difficulties with some easy for kids or seniors. The new bird blind is a wonderful way to view the many birds that live or pass through the area and... More

we were staying at Indian Lodge; hiked the mountains just outside the property in a 25mph head wind; crazy but we just kept walking, staring at the gorgeous Davis Mts , and spying flocks of Western bluebirds that shadowed our hike.
