An oasis straight out of Lord of the Rings in the middle of the southwestern flavored Chihuahuan Desert. We arrived in the basin on a cloudy day, and the Chisos looked so foreboding that I half expected to see an orc army gathering in the...More

From main visitor center 13 Miles, then left up into mountains. Very nice approx 6.5 Miles to next visitor center. Recommended less than 24 RV due to hills and sharp turns

The Chisos Mountains are easily views and hiked from within Big Bend National Park, Texas. They are covered with typical dry area vegetation and offer good, well marked hiking trails and the occasional driving route. Well worth the visit when you are in southern Texas.
