One of the favorite trails in Big Bend is from the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive to the Mule Ears outcrop just southwest of the Chicos Mountains. Most folks enjoy the scenic hike to one of the park’s best known geological features. The desert terrain and unique plant life make this a hike for everyone to enjoy!
