Outside the Park Travel Guide

Outside the Park

Just as many of Big Bend's zones are geographically remote, the park itself is isolated among hundreds upon hundreds of miles of West Texas desert and scrub. The nearest metropolis is El Paso, 329 miles away, while the nearest sizable cities are Odessa and Midland, 222 and 242 miles, respectively, to the northeast.
