Old Maverick Road, Big Bend National Park 1

Old Maverick Road, Big Bend National Park

Despite its vast diversity, some parts of Big Bend National Park still appear desolate. Old Maverick Road, a relatively smooth path that runs between Santa Elena Canyon and the western edge of the park near Terlingua, is flat and seemingly remote. The Chisos Mountains appear in the distance, Santa Elena Canyon is in the rearview mirror, and the Chihuahuan Desert transports you into a barren yet amazing landscape.
