Amazing scenery, lots of places to stop for pictures or a picnic. Mile and miles of winding road. If you like to hike you have so many choices you need to go back often. Take the drive, you will remember it.

Beautiful scenery along the main drive. We had a beautiful campsite on the river. Much prettier park than Big Bend National
