Mesa de Anguila Trail to Tinaja Blanca

Mesa de Anguila Trail to Tinaja Blanca Professional Review and Guide

"The Mesa de Anguila trail network is often the neglected child of the Big Bend National Park family of trails simply because it is the most remote, lying along the far western edge of the park’s 800,000-acre slice of northern Chihuahuan Desert.

Because of its distance from the core of the park—the Chisos Mountains and Chisos Basin— and the fact that the national park contains a lifetime’s worth of hiking and backpacking opportunities in and around this core, the Mesa de Anguila receives fewer visitors annually. The Mesa is also one of the roughest and most challenging regions of the park, particularly given its lack of a reliable water source."
