Grapevine Hills Trail (BBNP)


  • Balanced Rock along the Grapevine Hills Trail in Big Bend National Park.

Activities & Features


The Grapevine Hills Trail is an easy hiking trail in Big Bend National Park, Texas. This hike is kid friendly and starts at a parking area roughly 6 miles down Grapevine Hills dirt road. The park says "this trail leads to a group of balanced rocks in the heart of the Grapevine Hills. Initially, the trail follows a gravel wash, then climbs steeply for the last quarter mile into the boulders. Grapevine Hills is an exposed laccolith, with many giant, rounded boulders that are tempting to climb, but watch for snakes." As with all trails in Big Bend, make sure to carry plenty of water and sunscreen when hiking. There are three developed front country campgrounds in Big Bend National Park, the Chisos Basin Campground, Cottonwood Campground and the Rio Grande Village Campground.
