Scenic Highways in
West Texas

Ads claiming "Texas is a whole other country" are relatively true—especially if measured by its variety in topography, culture and residents. Visiting West Texas is entirely different than heading to big-city Dallas. It has to be the least populated area in the state and is home to beautiful "wide-open-spaces" Texas Scenic Highways.


Texas Mountain Trail: Deemed a Texas State Scenic Highway, this wide-open stretch of road between El Paso, New Mexico and Big Bend National Park, TX exposes motorists to a rich heritage region and cultural corridor that exemplifies West Texas. There's a newly renovated historic hotel in Van Horn,Texas and, in Marfa, the famous historicPaisano Hotel where Liz Taylor stayed while making the movie Giant. Also take in Marfa's unique artsy-foodie experiences and the chance to explore the mysteries surrounding the famous Marfa lights. The highway leads you to Big Bend Resort and Adventureswhere you're welcome to spend a few days of in depth exploration.

Basin Drive: Big Bend National Park is a short but savory 10-mile drive that instantly transports visitors from desert environs to over mile-high altitudes. The gorgeous twist and turn highway exposes you to a variety of eco systems in a very short drive. You can literally see the vegetation "morph" before your eyes! Motorists are amazed at the stark differences in weather and temperature; it can be very hot in the desert and up top you'll need a sweater! The views are unbelievable and so is the hiking! Stay at Chisos Mountains Lodge, the only lodging in the Park—and it's located right in the Basin.


The Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive On this 30 mile paved road you'll travel from the western foothills of the Chisos Mountains to the Rio Grande Valley and the spectacular gorge of Santa Elena Canyon. There are several trailheads and scenic points of interest. En route you can stop at Sam Neil Ranch or Homer Wilson Ranch, hike to Burro Mesa Pouroff, or visit the Castolon Historic District. From here it's just miles to the Santa Elena Canyon and Rio Grande River.
