The Rio Grande boasts of a distinct natural formation in the Big Bend National Park named the Boquillas Canyon Trail, a moderate 1.4 miles round trip offering an array of bird species and desert animals. Along this trail to the top of a cliff overlooking the Rio Grande, you will see a number of mortar holes from ancient inhabitants. The remote and serene cliff top will offer you tranquillity and a magnificent view of the calm Rio Grande and also Mexico. The downhill slopes that lead to the river’s edge and into the canyon until the canyon walls meet the river offers a great opportunity to slide, but with cautiousness. The Boquillas Canyon is altogether 20 miles long and starts at the east of the Rio Grande Village where the river is wild. You can also explore the canyon on a boat along the fast-flowing river.
