Big Bend NP-Top of Burro Mesa Pouroff Trail
This isn't a well-known trail, but it was a highlight of our recent Big Bend National Park trip. The trail winds down through a narrowing canyon before reaching a spot where water pours over the edge in the area's infrequent rains. And that's the end of the trail. With lots of interesting geologic formations and close-in solitude, the trail should be on your short list.
- 4.50 miles of Singletrack
- 500 feet
How to get there:
From the main highway thru Big Bend National Park, turn south on Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive. The trailhead is 6.9 miles down the road - look for the pull-off parking on the right.
