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.
Great gravel road with very nice desert sights and sounds, go early morning, 104 in late April
Enjoyed the drive.
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
