Boquillas Trail in Big Bend National Park

Now's a great time of year to visit the Boquillas Canyon Trail in Big Bend National Park!

From the park's website:

Difficulty:Moderate; Distance: 1.4 miles round trip
Begins at the end of the Boquillas Canyon Spur Road

The Boquillas Canyon trail climbs from the parking to the top of a cliff overlooking the Rio Grande. On this bluff, mortar holes from ancient inhabitants can be seen. Continue down to the river's edge and into the canyon until the canyon walls meet the river. Sandy slopes in the canyon are fun for children.

Not far from the trailhead is the new border crossing to Boquillas, Mexico.  Read about it here!
