Big Bend National Park Sights


Santa Elena Canyon

Santa Elena Canyon Review

The finale of a short but vigorous hike (1.7 miles round-trip) over a steep slope is a spectacular view of the Rio Grande and sheer cliffs that rise 1,500 feet to create a natural box. Summer can feel like a sauna, but you might have the place to yourself.
