The months of October through April are the best times to visit the Texas Big Bend Travel Region. The combination of milder weather and this year’s increased flow rate of the Rio Grande River offer fabulous paddling experiences! Grab a kayak, canoe, or raft and head out to enjoy the challenge!! Check out the Rio Grande River paddling trails information on the appropriate outdoor pages of Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park. Also, read the parks’ pages and the pages of the nearby towns of Terlingua, Presidio, and Lajitas for information on lodging, food, outfitters, and fun activities! Don’t forget your camera!
