I am from Seattle and didn't expect to see this type of beauty in Texas. Definitely a hidden gem in Texas. More people, that love nature, need to add this area to their bucket list!

The Chisos (means Spirit or Ghost) Mountains hold a Special Place for those travelers seeking peace and solitude. As you enter the Big Bend National Park there is a $25.00 entry fee good for 7 consecutive days. There are no billboards, traffic lights, pollution, fences...More

Stayed at the lodge and had a great time. Beautiful views and AC in the room at the lodge except for the last night when we lost electricity.

Such a vast area to see, but a "must do". All sorts of terrain to see. Unfortunately for us, they are had suffered storms and we could not visit Santa Elena because the roads were shut due to floods and little landslides. We missed out!!

Location location location - don't want too many people to know about this amazing place as it would spoil it :-) Basic but clean with nature on your doorstep.

We loved our time in the mountains! Beautiful sunrise and sunsets! Trails are a bit difficult for us seniors, but we managed to climb some. The roads here are good and not over crowded like we experienced in Yellowstone National Park.

Chisos Mountains is the key back drop scenery for the Big Bend National Park. These mountains have several panoramic views and hiking trails for short or extensive hiking.

Go to Big Bend. See the Chisos Mountains, hike 'em, look at 'em, love 'em. The South Rim Trail is tough, but the best in Texas, but there are lots of easier hikes, too. Or just see them from the road. Beautiful red color. Trivia:...More

These mountains are simple gorgeous. Just breathtaking beauty. My favorite part of the entire park. Wish we stayed here a bit longer. Worth every bit of the journey here.

I'm thinking of going to Big Bend National Park in late November/early December. How is the weather then? Snow??

Snow very unlikely. We just went late December and it was 60-70 F during day and 50-40 F at night. It can vary a lot tho
