Directions from Rio Grande Village: Travel to the parking area at the end of the Boquillas Canyon Road
The trail starts with a lot of up and down in elevation. The first climb is the toughest part. The beautiful vistas in the canyon are worth the climb. I got a thrill from being able to walk right up to the Rio Grande.
Nice short trail to the canyon wall. Don't forget to tip the "singing Mexican"!
Easy trail and you can appreciate de border between USA and Mexico, in some places separated for about 30 feet!
Forgot to mention... Our boys are 8 and 5, and it was the perfect length/challenge for a 5yo's third trail of the day.
A nice walk. We went mid-day and there was very little shade. Kids will need a drink after tackling the sand slope!
Easy trail along the river with a nice river canyon view.
A great trail alongside the Rio Grande in Big Bend National Park. Steep little entry and after a little descent it levels out. Among some trees by the river you can see The Singing Jesus!
Interesting trail with a little history linked to it. The start is somewhat rocky but it levels out into the canyon and continues into the riverbed. Be aware that Mexico is officially on the other side of the river. You may even run into the "singing Jesus" along your travels
This a great hike for kids. I took my 7 yr old and we had fun climbing on the sand on the US side wall in the canyon.
amazing views... nice weather this time of the year. tall boquillas canyon walls! easy trail...
Another trail in the Big Bend that is along the river, and very hot in the summer. You'll climb a rather steep hill at the beginning, and the trail is in the riverbed the rest of the way.
