I’m planning to hike Big Bend for the first time. In January.
The Parks Service recommends:
• Desert Hikes
• Mountain Hikes
• River Hikes
As usual I’ll check with Rangers before deciding which hikes. Local information is critical in the desert. Backcountry Use Permits are required.
I’ll be mostly doing day hikes and one night tenting trips. Water is an issue, I understand, even in winter.
Unless you are walking the Rio Grande, of course.
