Big Bend Ranch State Park Map

The scenic drive along the River Road (Texas FM 170), following the meanders of the Rio Grande, is among the most spectacular in the nation. Due to road conditions, motor homes and large recreational vehicles may not be able to enter backcountry park areas. FM 170 allows access to small recreation areas along the river and to rafting and canoeing "put-in" and "take-out" points.
