Hi y’all! This will be our 3rd trip to BBNP (7 days), but hoping for a first time trip over to BBRSP mid-week. It’s proved difficult to find good info on driving/hiking conditions. Don’t laugh, but I drive a minivan. It’s been fine for BBNP as the toughest road I’ve attempted was Grapevine and it was okay. I stay off anything too crazy. Are there areas of BBRSP we can drive/hike/enjoy in a minivan? Or is it all too rough? Kids are ages 6,8,10...good hikes for that group? They’re great little hikers who’ve learned so much on our past 2 trips! Hoping for another fantastic year! Thanks for all your help!
The main entry road to the park is not paved but it is a high quality dirt/gravel road. There are several interesting hikes along that road.
Advice: consider the road in as part of the vacation, not part of the drive to get there. There’s plenty to look at. If it’s washboardy just take it slower. If it takes 2 hrs instead of one it just means more time to gaze around. If you think you’re vacation doesn’t start until you get to Sauceda your liable to rattle the teeth out of your head.
