Hiking in Texas at Big Bend National Park

Texas, located in the southern U.S., is known for its flat-desert-like terrain in the southwest part of the state, where the peaks of the Davis, Guadalupe and Santiago mountains rise up. Along the coastline, bayous, bays and saltwater marshes dot the landscape making for very scenic hiking in Texas.

Texas is home to Big Bend and Guadalupe Mountains national parks. With towering mountain mesas, dry Texas deserts and canyons blooming with life, Big Bend National Park pulls in hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
