The Big Bend 100

Risk and reward flirt on these 100 miles through brutal Big Bend beauty. Fortress cliffs, desert water, hints of history, and the Chisos Mountains sky island all compete for glory. Texas’ largest state park and national park partner to offer the longest backpacking trip in Texas. Each vista is punctuated by difficult navigation over tough terrain, with long stretches between water. Be real with your abilities, don't die. For the experienced backpacker, adventure awaits.


"There is a place in Far West Texas where the night skies are dark as coal and rivers carve temple-like canyons in ancient limestone. Hundreds of bird species take refuge in the solitary mountain range surrounded by weather beaten desert. This magical place is Big Bend."
