Visiting Big Bend National Park

43

Here at the Gage Hotel we love our little chunk of Texas. Thus, we couldn’t go without mentioning the park that gives the Big Bend area of West Texas its name. With 801,163 acres Big Bend National Park is the perfect attraction with something for everyone.

The park’s 200 miles of hiking trails offer opportunities to hike, horseback ride, bird watch, stargaze and much more. If water activities are more your style the park borders Rio Grande for 118 miles and provides the chance to take float excursions, kayak, canoe and soak in hot springs.  For a Mexican adventure visitors can cross the border through the Boquillas Crossing Port of Entry inside the park (previously mentioned here).

With a National Park filled with this many activities we don’t know how you’ll pick what to do first. One thing is for sure, visiting Big Bend National Park is the perfect compliment to your stay at the Gage Hotel.
