Texas Videos: Big Bend, Terlingua
Thanks to our friends at TravelTex.com for producing this great video; Big Bend National Park (including the park's Chief of Interpretation and Texas Mountain Trail board member, David Elkowitz; and the folks of Terlingua and Study Butte!
David talks about the Grapevine Hills trail...here's what the park's website says about the trail:
"Grapevine Hills Trail
Difficulty: Easy; Distance: 2.2 miles round trip
Begin 6 miles down Grapevine Hills improved dirt road at the parking area.
This trail leads to a group of balanced rocks in the heart of the Grapevine Hills. Initially, the trail follows a gravel wash, then climbs steeply for the last quarter mile into the boulders. Grapevine Hills is an exposed laccolith, with many giant, rounded boulders that are tempting to climb, but watch for snakes."
