Mexicano Falls Overlook Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The southeastern interior of Big Bend Ranch State Park offers some of the most outstanding views of Big Bend country. Hikers enjoy a hawk’s-eye view of deep, volcanic canyons and long, clear vistas that encompass the entire Chisos Mountain range miles away in the national park and beyond. This is as close to true wilderness as Texas gets.
A high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicle and, most important, the ability to actually drive a four-wheel-drive vehicle correctly, are essential for reaching the trailhead. Just the drive to the Mexicano Falls trailhead will require a good part of the morning as the roadway transitions from pavement to dirt to rugged (and sometimes vertical) jeep road."
