An improved gravel road in the Big Bend National Park. The north end starts just inside the west entrance of the Park, and ends at Santa Elena Canyon on the Rio Grande River.

Bumpy, but great shortcut to Santa Elena. Nice sighting of a primitive structure along the way.

Great drive. Had a Bobcat cross the road right in front of me. Washboardy most of the time. End of December I believe most cars could take this road if you weren’t low low. Wish it was worse so I could use my 4x4. Luna Jacal’s house was a nice pit stop to view.

Drove this trail again in Oct 2015. I had read about an unknown grave about 1 mile north of Luna's. I found it, and found out there is another grave on the mesa next to the one by the road to the west. There is also a ruin around behind the hill to the east of the grave. An easy way to find these is the stop where the power line crosses the road. The roadside grave is about 200 feet south of the power line crossing on the west side.

Incredible views and the washes are only bad if you're improperly prepared or are one of those people trying to take your Lamborghini on the trail!

Some of the washes can become pretty rough after a rain. Luna's Jacal (home) is an interesting place. He raised a large family there in the first half of the 1900's
