The only off road bike trail in the Corpus Christi area. Well maintained by volunteers. Some cool added features to ride. There is a Monday PM group ride almost year round. See or call Bay Area Cycles for schedule. I ride here about once a month on average and am very great full this park is available.

It's the closest thing Corpus Christi has to a wildlife/wilderness trail and I use it all the time to try out my backpacking gear, be among nature, etc. Don't freak out by the labyrinth of trails. You can pretty much follow the power lines to find an exit somewhere. The trails are mostly maintained by volutneers, can get overgrown at times. Chiggers are real bad in Spring and Summer. I only gave four stars because I wish this park was bigger with even more trails and that camping was allowed.

Beautiful and amazing place you can't believe you have all these different environments in one same place. Beautiful in the border with Mexico. Big park so one weekend camping will not be enough to discover it all. Amazing to come back over and over again.

If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Almost 300,000 acres, many of the campsites are serviced by "unimproved" dirt roads. The first time I went the campsite was a full 1.5 hours in 4-lo off the main (gravel) road. Our group of 3 didn't not see another human being for 4 days, except when going up to the Ranger Station/Park Hdqts. And this was over spring break week!
If you like the Chihuahuan Desert for its emptiness, ruggedness, and beautiful light, this is your place.
I'm going back!

This Big Bend Ranch State Park is huge! It runs along the Rio Grande from Presidio to Lajitas; it was a private ranch in years past. There are miles and miles of 4X4 trails, and just about that many for hiking. A very rocky area; one should not go out alone, and make sure you have water, and minimum 6 - 8 ply tires! It is referred to as "The other side of nowhere!"

Big Bend Ranch State Park is probably Texas' largest state park. It covers much of the area between Presidio and the Big Bend National Park. Miles and miles of 4X4 roads, as well as hiking trails are there. A word of caution: You need 8 ply or better tires on your vehicle as the terrain is quite rocky. The park is referred to as "The other side of nowhere". Very remote.
