My husband and I and friends planned our visit as the highlight of a two week northern winter weather get-away. We were there in early March and the park was busy at spring break. We booked a campsite at the Basin Campground the day they became available (6 months out), which was necessary since all campgrounds as well as the... 更多
If you want a nice, short, easy-to-moderate hike, then check out the Basin Loop trail. It's easy to access from the Chisos Mountain Lodge parking lot. It took about 2 hours, but that was at a slow and easy pace. The park service rates it at about an hour. There are nice views of the Basin area. If you're into... 更多
This was my first visit to the Chisos mountains and I will say they exceeded my expectations. The mountains are breathtaking and, especially dramatic rising up from the desert floor. At every turn on the winding roads, we saw unique rock formations. I drove my husband crazy asking him to stop so I could get out and take pictures. Put... 更多
It was wonderful to come up into these mountains from the heat of the desert to enjoy the cooler temperatures, as well as the scenic beauty of the mountains and trees. We took the Chisos Basin loop hike and found the views spectacular around every turn in the trail. The view through the window is unique as you are looking... 更多
We camped 2 nights in the Chisos Basin campground and had two full days of hiking in the mountains. The Chisos Basin campground is the most incredible campground I have ever camped in. Beautiful mountains surround you on all sides. It is difficult to get a reservation (we weren't able to), but the first-come-first-serve procedure is very straightforward and explained... 更多
This is a nice change of scenery from the desert and cactus that you see in so much of Big Bend. There were actually trees. I never did see the aspen trees that I had read about. They are my favorite tree. It's nice too because the temperature decreased as we drove up the road in elevation.
We had just finished some vigorous hiking so opted to drive through the mountains making only a few short stops for pictures. Very dusty and dry but worth seeing and exploring. Just make sure to bring plenty of water and snacks. Extremely hot outside.
We spent 10 days riding mostly out of our camp at the Rio Grande Village...however we also stayed one night at the Chisos Mountain Loadge and one in Terlingua....we worked on our Little TW Yamama 200s throughout as many areas and legal trails as we could do in that time...finally figuring out we could not get it done, with justice,... 更多
Visited here in October . Shame the little Border Crossing was closed which is odd as you would expect it would be a 7 day operation however the customs people had a couple of days off . Really enjoyed this place and would say make sure you take the time to visit and stay when in South West Texas
