Descend this slot canyon from Big Bend's scenic River Road toward the Mexican border and the raging Rio Grande.

Drop from the scorched Chihuahuan Desert into Closed Canyon on this short 1.4-mile dayhike in the western horn of Texas. Then scramble or wade around deep pools to views of the Rio Grande, the Mexico Border, and an optional rappel. See more trail details provided by map scout Melissa Gaskill at backpacker.com/hikes/479976.
