Let’s get ready to ramble. Headquartered one mile from the entrance to the interior of Big Bend Ranch State Park, and a scenic 50 miles from Big Bend National Park, West Texas’ vast backcountry trail systems are in our backyard. Call us to discuss our many hiking and backpacking options.
Hiking season: October through mid-April
We offer several inspiring day hikes and tours that can be customized for your private group. Whether it’s classic hikes in the Chisos Mountains, short hikes along River Road, a trek to the top of Texas, or a well kept secret off the beaten path, we can make it happen.
$175/person. Minimum 2 persons.
MULTI-DAY BACKPACKING TRIPS
Want to get far out? For a truly immersive Big Bend experience, we offer several backpacking trips ranging from beginner to advanced. We can provide the gear, food and snacks, a detailed packing list, and all the know-how and support for your group’s adventure. We even offer guided “thru hikes” such as the Big Bend 100, a 100-mile route through the state park into the national park.
$200/person/day. Minimum 2 persons. Groups over 6 are $180 per person per day.
MULTI-DAY VEHICLE/BOAT ASSISTED TRIPS
We also offer hiking trips where all you have to carry is a day pack. Similar to a full-service river trip, we’ll have your camp set up and a delicious dinner prepared after a day of hiking. We’ll follow that with a hearty breakfast the next morning.
$200/person/day. Minimum 2 persons. Vehicle or boat assisted camps are an additional $600 per 2-6 hikers and an additional $100 per hiker beyond 6.
