BBRSP, east side entry point
« on: May 09, 2018, 11:12:00 AM »
I have been searching the net as well as BBC trying to find out if an east entrance into Big Bend Ranch was ever opened. I have seen some posts from years ago discussing the possibility of one being open near Terlingua, but have not seen anything recent. My wife snd I are going again this year and trying to find a faster way to get to the Solitario so we can take the road to nowhere. It would save a lot of time and afford us more time to offroad in the area if we didnt have to go to the West entrance as we are staying in Terlingua. Any help or advise anyone has would be very appreciated.

Unfortunately, there isn't an east side entrance.
Just Casa Piedra Road close to Presideo and Marfa on the North End, or Bofecillos Road, which is closer by a bit to Terlingua.
If you have time, just plan on an all day trip to Nowhere.

Honestly I kind of like that there isn't an east side entrance now. It keeps the traffic down a bit and makes it easier for the rangers to manage, I bet.

I have to agree about limited access. It would be nice to be able to spend more time exploring instead of just getting there, but then it would become over crowded like the National park. We will just be up very early and headed out to make sure we have a full day of exploring and may even decide to camp in the park over night to get a headstart on the following day. I appreciate the input, can't wait for the next two weeks to be over so I can get back to the Bend.
