River Trips in Big Bend

One of the favorite adventures open to Big Bend visitors is a river trip.  With the summer rains, the river is often READY for river-runners this time of year. The National Park has a comprehensive webpage with links to pages with outfitter contacts and important safety information.

We like to recommend two places to Big Bend visitors:  Museum of the Big Bend in Alpine and Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center on the River Road.  Combined, they give you a great introduction to the region:  history, culture, and natural history.

Thanks to Randy Mallory and the Texas Historical Commission for this photo!
