Scenic Route: Chisos Mountains
Snow in the Chisos Mountains highlights an already magical view, blanketing the trees and adding a new dimension to formations. Reach the Chisos Basin area from both entrances of Big Bend National Park by taking Panther Junction Road to Chisos Basin Road. Enjoy the various views of the mountains as the road climbs and winds for six miles through the landscape, arriving at a 5,400-foot elevation at the basin campground.
