The views here are amazing! I loved the scenic drive and while we were hiking near the Window Trail, there was a lot of wildlife! We saw deer, a mountain lion or big cat, black pigs, all kinds of birds, coyotes and from afar a baby bear! I went with my hubby, 2 teenagers and 2 small kids and the Window Trail was approximately 5 miles round trip, I think? It goes down at first and on the way back you are climbing up. It is a little difficult but we were able to do it. Just make sure to bring water and snacks and take rest breaks if you have never hiked before. Be careful while driving up and down the mountains. At one point, a black pig just ran out into the road in front of me. Luckily I was driving slow and was able to break and let it go across.

These mountains are so beautiful. Each had its own aura you just see magnificent views from all spots in Big Bend. Vistas beyond belief. You don’t have to be a hiker to enjoy God’s beauty.

It was a long drive to reach this park but worth it. It is a huge park so we didn’t spend as much time there as we would have liked. It is beautiful and one of the best things is you are so close to Mexico you can cross the Rio Grande and visit, providing you have a passport. There are many ways to see this park, by car, hiking or a Jeep tour they offer.

A visit to the Chisoso Mtns. will give you a nice break from the hot desert below. A twisty road (not recommended for large RVs) will take you up to the Chisos Mt. lodge and campground. A good place to take a hike since it winds through the treeline, as opposed to the desert trails where there is no shade.
