Big Bend Ranch State Park

This is Passport to Texas

If you’re at Big Bend Ranch State Park and someone tells you to “hit the trail,” you’ll probably have to ask for directions.

Our SP guide, Bryan Frazier explains.

Big Bend Ranch is known for lots of things: the beauty, the wide open spaces and the Chihuahuan desert. And it’s just kind of this Big Bend frame of mind—the people who’ve been there know exactly what you’re talking about. What people may not know is the intricate network of trails that we have. There’s more than 200 miles of old jeep trails and multi-use trails, equestrian trails, and a lot of these have been improved with great signage and great markers. Some of the loops are even available on Google Earth. There’s a Big Bend Ranch State Park hiking guide just for that, that you can find online. So, BBR is really catering to people who not only like the back country, and everything that Big Bend area is, but who want an organized set of trails so that they can know where they’re going, can plan their trip, and it’s really something that’s enhanced the usage of Big Bend Ranch State Park.

Thanks Bryan.
