Enjoy time in one of Big Bend’s more remote canyons. This trip begins and ends along the remote River Road at the southern end of Big Bend National park and the drive is a scenic and exciting adventure in and of itself. Mariscal Canyons narrow passage and towering walls are spectacular and the southernmost piece of the “Big Bend” of the Rio Grande lies along its path. This canyon is one of our least visited and contains fascinating remnants of unique human history along with a bounty of natural wonders. Hiking in Mariscal offers elevation gain and breathtaking views, fascinating visits to places of human occupation, and access to places that is only available from the river.
