Ten Must Do Activities in Big Bend

No. 1 Santa Elena Canyon

This 1500’ deep vertical gorge was once called The Grande Canyon of Texas.

You can access the spectacular view via paved road, and a 100 yard walk will take you to water’s edge.  A 1.5 miles round trip hike will take you into the shadowy depths of the canyon, first climbing a series of paved steps then heading into the canyon and back down to rivers edge. The view is absolutely breathtaking.
