March is a great time of year, wildflowers everywhere if you hit it right.
Camp in Chisos Basin – centrally located in the park
Recommended Trails from Chisos Basin:
-Lost Mine Trail
-The Window Trail
-South Rim Loop
Santa Elena Canyon – about ½ hour drive to southwest corner of the park
Boquillas Canyon – south east corner of the park
Take an afternoon to visit Boquillas del Carmern, Mexico – probably not accessible with Covid, but there’s a pedestrian crossing into Mexico. You’ll check in a little trailer, and then walk down to the Rio Grande. Mexicans will call over to you and ask if you want to cross. They’ll row over and pick you up for $5. Another $5 will get you a mule or pickup ride into the village, although it’s only about half mile or so. Wonderful, friendly people and a humbling experience.
Terlingua – ghost town outside of the park
Camp in Pine Springs – I think everything is FCFS, which can be a challenge because there is NOTHING anywhere else around
From Pine Spring, hike Guadalupe Peak – highest point in TX
McKintrick Canyon is also a fun day hike a short drive away
Visit Frijole Ranch
Visit salt flat dunes on west side of park – it’s a long drive around through Dell City; there’s nothing around there, but little visited area of the park and really different perspective
Take the time to drive up to Carlsbad as its near Guadalupe; one of the cooler caverns I’ve visited (of probably 20+)
