03Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive

Enjoy some of the most stunning views in Big Bend National Park by taking the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive. Views of the mountains stretch out into the distance across the Chihuahuan Desert. Stop along the way to view the Homer Wilson Ranch to see the old homestead and take in the views. One of the longer trails in the park, the Mule Ear Springs Trail is accessed from this road. The trail is magnificent, but if you don't feel up to it, you should stop at the trail point to look at the twin peaks.
